(Community Matters) Returning to my hotel late last night, hot tomato soup & grilled cheese from room service as comfort, I became glued to Rachel Maddow’s MSNBCs live coverage of Egypt. I’ve been trading emails with two of my favorite correspondents (Kirk Rudy & Steve Adler) on this for the last week but admittedly, I haven’t tuned in to watch until now. Attacks on protesters by pro-Mubarak supporters seems a mistake; appears now in hands of military. The implications for world peace are overwhelming; as an eternal optimist, I’m hopeful while cautious & concerned.
Wish I was in on next week’s meetings in Austin with Israeli Ambassador to the U.S., Michael Oren.
