Egypt: the Next Day

The only difference between yesterday and today is that yesterday Mubarak could have left with some small shred of dignity, with the illusion that he had voluntarily left office for the good of the country.

Today there is no such illusion. There was a coup d'etat today and Mubarak was given the option of leaving the Presidential Palace under his own power or being dragged out by his heels.
