Live From the Egyptian Revolution
by Sharif Abdel Kouddous

Cairo, Egypt — I grew up in Egypt. I spent half my life here.

"‘The Comeback Kid’ and the Kids Who Won’t" By Amy Goodman

President Barack Obama signed a slew of bills into law during the lame-duck session of Congress and was dubbed the “Comeback Kid” amid a flurry of fawning press reports.
