Oh Superman, where are you now?

Egypt has gone from this...

Days of romantic hope
to this...

One of Spidey's less fruitful adventures
and now to this.

Not so Sowbar-man

Egypt today seems lost and rudderless. The country is being pulled apart by conflict, both real and virtual. 

Notwithstanding the delusion of misplaced trust in the wimpy superhereos of the country's modern past (even if Gamal Abdel Nasser and his proteges had notable powers of domestic destruction), Egyptians are looking for someone, anyone, who can rise above the rubble to offer some sort of inspiration and belief in a greater good.

The search goes on.
