Is the 'future' coming to Egypt?

| Virtually the whole world stood up and applauded the Egyptian youth on their successful campaign to rid themselves of their tyrant president Hosni Mubarak except for the Christian Right in the U.S. and Fox News. But their rejection should give the Egyptians all the more reason to be more cautious especially when euphoria comes to an end and when they begin to tackle the diverse issues that confront them.|

Betting And PatriotismHameed Abdul Karim
Cricket used to be gentleman’s game but now it is a businessman’s game with even players considered businessmen instead of players or gentlemen. Against this backdrop, MP Thilanga Sumathipala’s call or order (The Sunday Leader, March 6, 2011) for all Sri Lankans to support Sri Lanka must be seen as a racist one especially when you consider the rather inflammatory statements he has made in his Sinhala newspaper Lakbima.
