A poll from the Ministry of Interior's Website

I wish that the person who created that poll wouldn’t be responsible for the safety of the Egyptian roads!!!

April 6th General Strike in Egypt

The calls for a general strike have spread over the past week through the internet and text messages.

A group called "April 6" on Facebook has attracted more than 64,000 members.

It is unclear who initiated the call to expand the strike beyond the 25,000 employees of the textile plant in the central city of Mahalla.

The messages have urged people to stay home from work, avoid shopping, wear black clothes and hang the Egyptian flag from windows and balconies in a show of support for the strikers.

-Beneath the photo from the REAGAN DIARIES is an actual quote that Reagan wrote about George "W" in his diaries, recently edited by author Doug Brinkley and published by Harper Collins

"A moment I've been dreading. George brought his n'er-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida; the one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work."
