'Egypt is Free!'

Video footage of crowds outside the presidential palace reacting to Mubarak's resignation today:

And I sincerely hope they're right about the "free" thing. We just don't know if it's going to get better or a lot worse.

Egypt's Hosni Mubarak resigned as president and handed control to the military on Friday, bowing down after a historic 18-day wave of pro-democracy demonstrations by hundreds of thousands.

The military? That can't be good. #DebbieDowner
