Agreeable Day: Democracy Is Great, and I Hope Nobody Else Gets Hurt

It’s wild, everything happening in Egypt, isn’t it? People talk a lot about who’s to blame and what America should or shouldn’t have done, and it’s fine—important, really—to argue about those things. This country needs a better Middle East policy. Still, though, right now, it’s amazing and inspiring to see so many Egyptian people standing up for their rights. Everyone deserves freedom and democracy. I admire their courage, and I hope their lives get better.
