The Short List

  • Update on Egypt.  The first notion of who the opposition groups are is coming to light, as they demand Mubarak resign before talks begin.  Turkey's Prime Minister Erdogan implores Mubarak to reform and to "listen to the shouting of the people."  In the U.S., there is a rare moment of bipartisanship on the Egypt issue.

  • Jordan's King Abdullah II has sacked his prime minister and cabinet in response to protests in that country.

  • Red-light cameras save lives and raise revenues according to a new study.

  • The Economist reviews a new book looking at why the Middle East fell behind Europe economically.
