I have no follow-up links on California’s transportation problems, our meeting topic. But some of us were discussing Egypt after the meeting, so here are a few really good commentaries on the situation there, starting with a little more info on the Muslim Brotherhood:
- A primer on Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. Very useful if you don’t follow this stuff over time.
- Another good article on the Brotherhood. Neither pollyanish nor hysterical. This is kind of what I was arguing last night.
- A more sanguine view of the Brotherhood, closer to what Ron was saying last night.
- Praise for Obama’s handling of this whole thing — so far.
- Praisefor Al Jazeera’s coverage — plus a useful reminder of the network’s biases and limits.
