Tahrir: Mona Eltahawy Arrested -

I have some good news and some
bad news about the Egyptian situation . . .

First, the good news: Catching up with our old blogging pal Sandmonkey, we learn that he's planning to run for the Heliopolis District parliament seat. There had been an election planned for November 28th, but because of the current chaos, who knows what will happen. [gpost]

And now, the bad news: According to recent tweets, journalist Mona Eltahawy has been arrested, and the State Department has been informed. AJE confirms the reported arrest. Hash tag in use: #FreeMona
