What Kind Of Day Has It Been

  • A violent one. 1500 people wounded in clashes between pro- and anti-Mubarak protesters today. Anti-Mubarak protesters have stayed in Tahrir Square and even driven pro-Mubarak forces away, apparently winning the night if not the day. DCExile's take on the clashes available here. Al-Jazeera's live stream of Cairo here and live blog here.
  • Some Sudanese are attempting to emulate the risings in Tunisia and Egypt.
  • Fred Karger, Republican Strategist, Gay Rights Activist is making waves in New Hampshire. Note the article's narrative about Krager ("the candidate") not being able to find the appropriate lane of the road. If this guy survives to become more than an also ran, this is the sort of initial story narrative that will be repeated in every article about his candidacy.
  • Obama over Palin in Arizona.
  • The Kepler Planet Finder has identified 1235 possible planets in our neighborhood.
