Day 99 - Calico Critter

Thought of the day:  Egypt has apparently cut itself off the Internet today.  In this information age, having access to internet is like having access to water, air, you name it, and to be suddenly cut off completely must feel eerie, and even scary, for the people inside the country.  It's such a drastic move by the government as it must have a negative impact, in both short and long term, on its economy as well.  A number of governments have the power and even authority to essentially pull the plug.  But there is a big difference between using the power to block the flowing of information during a politically sensitive time and using the power to protect critical national interests during a global cyberattack. Well, what's happening in Egypt is shocking, and I hope this will never ever happen in this country.
