Big Nanny and Big Brother

This Vanity Fair article by Scott Anderson is one of the finest piece of reporting on Egypt I have ever read -- the kind of article that makes you want to go out and shoot anyone driving a Jeep Cherokee. It lays bare everything that terrifies elite Egyptians or should be keeping them up at night.

(Thanks Josh).

Update: Well Matthew beat me to it on this one and has a different take. Such are the problems with intercontinental blogging.
