Trying to get back into this habit (encourage me if you like it; otherwise I’ll quit trying). Here’s what we have right now:
- Egyptian protesters defy curfew in Cairo (WashPost) — Wow. The dominoes DO seem to be falling.
- Clinton Calls for ‘Restraint’ and ‘Reform’ (NYT) — And that’s pretty much the U.S. position right now. Don’t y’all get carried away, but let’s have some change.

- Stronger Consumer Spending Boosts U.S. Growth (AP) — Then, on the other hand, there are causes for optimism.

- Uganda priest berates gays at funeral (BBC) — So much for laying the poor guy to rest.
