Too busy to write in more length about this today, but for over a week now the Egyptian (non-state) media has gone into another one of its Mubarak deathwatch modes. Last time was during the last big al-Ahly game, when Mubarak's absence at the match caused a panic among journos who believed the old man was agonizing. Too much wishful thinking... but that says a lot about the state that Egypt is in right now. More later on this hopefully!
