Quote of the Day

Nothing, not all the armies in the world, can stop an idea whose time has come.
--Victor Hugo

As much as I sometimes lament the electronic bombardment that characterizes the 21st century, there a moments when the realization that it is of enormous value becomes crystal clear. One such moment is Youtube's video of Egypt's Girl in the Blue Bra:

If you have not yet seen this footage, prepare to be shocked and outraged, as are the protesters in Tahrir Square:

Let us all stand in solidarity with our Egyptian sisters and brothers, as a true international commune of women and men. Recent violence against protesters in the U.S.A. demonstrates that the plight of the protester is an international issue, one that should be of gravest concern to us all.

When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.
--Thomas Jefferson
