  1. I think it's back on now rjs.
    that link above is working now.
    Egyptian gov. closed down their Cairo office earlier but, they are getting reports out anyway, using land lines i think i heard them say.
    thanks rjs, fingers crossed that this can go smoothly and not escalate into something really bad.

  2. ok, sorry rj, I misunderstood. I guess about the only place you can find any current or half way accurate info is on the internet right now.
    20 or more years ago, we'd have seen Walter Cronkite on the news with reports from our own reporters on the ground, now...just commercials and news about celebrities.

  3. hey, pam, nothing to be sorry about, i understood your rushed intent...& i was 26 seconds late in getting here, anyway...ill try to get here sooner next time...
