I love that Men's Journal article. Actually the other day I was going through my magazines and found it. Its one of the better articles about him.

Glad he is going to Egypt but also a little worried about it because it's such a fluid situation. However, I'm looking forward to his reports this week. It should be interesting.

Interestingly, I've been studying Archaeology and this past week's chapter has been about looters in volatile locations. I just saw on CNN now that Dr. Zahi Hawass (over ancient antiquities in Egypt)said a few looters broke into the Cairo Museum and ripped the head off two Mummies and broke some artifacts. The army came to protect the museum and take away the looters. Also, locals are also watching over the museums. I hope all the antiquities are saved because they are an important link to our past.

Not surprised AC's headed to Egypt--the reports on CNN (and Richard Engle on MSNBC) have been excellent.
