Some more good news

I do not intend to blog about Prince William and the future Princess. What can one say after saying one wishes them well and, no doubt, there will be a good deal of frenzy on both sides: among those who think this is the greatest and most important piece of news ever and among those who want grumble in disgust or make really stupid jokes, every one of which has been made on numerous occasions. And that's enough Prince William.

The good news is from Egypt where the blogger Karim, whose fate I have tried to follow, has been released from prison after four years and a good deal of mistreatment. OpenMarket. org reports and suggests we all celebrate and remember how fortunate we are to live in a country where criticism of your government does not get you to prison. Au contraire. (I trust nobody is going to comment darkly on the lines of "just you wait and see".) The Free Kareem website also reports the release.
