Today, I find myself playing a little mental game of 'these two things are not the same'...
The first of the two photographs was taken on Feb 1st, when Mubarak said he would not run again. In it, protestors hold their shoes up in a sign of disrespect towards Muburak. Take a good look at those shoes and think about the people who wear them.
Now jump forward to Feb 10th, when Mubarak said he would not step down. Look at those shoes.
Things seem to be changing in Egypt..
