    Maybe what's mentioned in the rpeort is correct. one thing is not correct which is the demonstration or revolution was not started and have not continued mainly because of that you can see so many Egyptian figures and very wealthy people, millionaires even are protesting in Tahrir sqr. It's revolution against corruption, injustice, humiliation of the Egyptian in our own beloved country, dictatorship.If it was for money, people would go home when the government granted raise to the Gov. employees as well as the army people asked for democracy, and justice.Power of technology and spiritual prayers of all Egyptian (Muslims and Christians and others) will be enough to achieve what we are all hoping for and getting closer to everyday )

    Although I've been married for 26 years I'd have to say that given the state of affairs today, if I was young and single I'd dedicate most of my energy towards financial solidity and career opportunities, preferrably outside the U.S. in order to polish some extended cultural/language skills. Getting involved in a conventional American marriage would be the last thing on my mind.

    Why should women indure the bs of a man? We don't really NEED men. We've come a long way since the days of wringer washing machines and stay at home mothers.
