Best 4th of July Fireworks – in Cairo

Like most of the people on the planet, I was glued to my TV screen last night, following the events in the streets of Cairo. Talk about throwing a party – this has to have been the most wonderful 4th of July celebration ever. And, by the way, if the Egyptians want it – they can declare July 4th their official Day of Independence (even though it was all happening on July 3rd).

Or maybe we’ll make it a twofer, with the Egyptian day coming right before the American. A day in Cairo, a night in DC kind of thing.

I don’t think it’s been done before – an Islamist president being toppled by a popular coup, completely driven by the people.

They’re still poor and hungry, but last night they looked crazy happy.
