The last Pharaoh?

LastPharaohEvents in Egypt have been remarkable to behold. I’m a bit optimistic but cautious. I’ve seen some good news come out of such turmoil and some crushing disappointments.

But I am very intrigued by the recent branding of Mubarak as “The Last Pharaoh.” If I were an Egyptian pro-democracy activist, that is precisely the label I would choose to use. It places Mubarak on the wrong side of history and also helps blunt a grab for power by would-be autocratic successors.
