Hosni has left the building

In a country were the last leader who left office while still breathing, rather than six feet under, was Egypt´s first President Muhammed Naguib in 1954, the clip above is truly of a highly symbolic as well as historic nature. It shows the painting of ex-president Hosni Mubarak being taken down from the wall of the room where the Government convenes.

It manifests the principal gain of the January 25th revolution so far, and one cannot help but wonder whom is next in line to be put inside the frame?

I have a suggestion to make, i would like to replace the painting with a digital photo frame, equal in size, were the photos would switch for every meeting and every martyr of the January 25th revolution would have a photo with his/her name and age as a reminder for the government as a whole that they are supposed to serve the Egyptian people, rather than every whim of it´s President.

Good suggestion. Would serve as a reminder. Where are the days of Omar Ibn Al-Khattab...
