This was a day of days in Egypt, not so much here.

I keep thinking, "Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio? A nation turns its lonely eyes to you."

It turns out that I was not the only one who thought the State of the Union speech was not just not about the State of the Union but was also not worth the time - left out lots of important aspects of the Union's state - poor people, Presidential death orders, unemployment, failure to file criminal charges against ANY bank guys who the Prez's own commission just found caused the recession by their gross negligence and mismanagement, failure of the Prez to relate the costs of two wars to the deficit, ... blah, blah, blah. But, wouldn't you know it, those kinds of things are rarely-if-ever mentioned in what passes for media here.  Meanwhile, CNN & Fox Pretend News make wholly unsubstantiated claims about al Qaeda involvement in the revolution in Egypt.

Alice, you were missing a Wonderland? I've found it.
