What's Going On In Egypt?

I pegged this guy a few days ago as a gutsy guy in a private email to Mr. Don as we were following live news broadcasts via BBC online and I was freaking out about the possibility of massive violence come Friday (2 - or is it 3? - days ago) after President Mubarak gave his speech and it was clear that he had no intention (then) of standing down.  I was walking around the office wondering - why aren't these people freaking out like I am?  Don't they know what's going on?  Don't they care?  If they know - do they really think events in Egypt won't affect them, one way or another? Oh Goddess...

Tonight I saw his name come up again in this article:

Hossam Badrawi, a stalwart of Mubarak's National Democratic Party, met with Mubarak on Thursday and later told reporters that he expected the Egyptian leader to "meet people's demands" — read that stepping down — later the same day. After Mubarak did not, Badrawi, who had been named the party's secretary general a few days earlier, resigned in protest, according to two party insiders.

Is he real, or is he Memorex?  Only the Egyptian people know for sure -- stay tuned.
