Yesterday morning, a reporter for British television was declaring: "I doubt demos today will get big numbers.80,000 people clicked Facebook to say they would turn up --- but clicking is easy."
Twelve hours later, that same reporter was writing, "Approaching midnight. 1,000s still in square. 1,000s of cops. Twitter from phones still down. Amazing spirit."
Another observer, while avoiding any daring predictions, stuck to this shrewd assessment....
"What's really important about today is not the exact numbers but that the psychological barrier of fear has been broken in Egypt."
And so to the Day after the Day of Revolution.
