Looks like two people have died today. Two AP folks were beaten by police, one reportedly needing surgery.

If nothing else, these protests expose the myth that oppressive Arab regimes are supported by the people they oppress. Whether the regimes reform, leave, or crack down remains to be seen.

I haven't seen any reports of protests in Damascus. I'm inclined to attribute that to the efficiency of Syria's security apparatus.

Interesting: Per a fellow at Oxford, Cairo residents are removing the passwords from their wi-fi routers to open a commuications path for protesters.
