Mubarak's speech was not entirely unexpected, on my part. Watch as the political master plays the worldwide crowd like a champion trout fisherman, until either the crowd stands down, or he gets an impregnable safe hole out. When knowledgeable and perceptive reporters on the street in Cairo are asked what is going on, and the response is essentially, "Dam*%d if I know," you know that somebody is playing games with the public mind. Let's see if there is peace beyond Friday prayers tomorrow. (We can only hope!)
