Your Tunisia Primer

This is helpful, since it pulls way back to start with, like, "What's a Tunisia" for those of us who have some geographical blank spots.

Ha ha, first-sentence whiplash:

"Reports just emerged around 12:30 p.m. Eastern time that the Tunisian dictator, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali (Ben Ali), has fled the country…"

Hooray!

"…and the Army has taken power."

Aw, crap.

Hey, Anonymous helped topple a brutal dictator. That gives them a free pass the next 25 times they sexually harass a random little girl online.

Adblock, yo. Look into it.

David Cho is on a plane all day today, but we are aware of the MENACING situation and it will be dealt with as soon as possible, whenever that is. Sorries!!!

All you need to know about Tunisia is that it is home to Mos Eisley, best known as the most wretched hive of scum and villainy EVER. Also, they have white slaves and pod races. And fat slug gangsters. Also ridiculous plot holes.

The watchword for today is "Tunisian Scenario," it's what every despot in the Arab world fears.

Also: There's a Tunisian solidarity protest at UN on 47th & 1st av on Mon 1 PM in NYC.

Shouldn't it be illegal to have American Apparel ads appearing in a story about Tunisia on Mother Jones?

My Internet has been broken for the last 4 weeks so I'll have to check that link next Monday. The repair guys is expected to be here and I should be able to get online again, FINALLY.
Yes, I am going to be insufferable for a while.
