Egypt’s Mubarak resigns as leader

The people of Egypt are celebrating in the street as former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak announced his resignation.  This BBC News article reports on this landmark event.  On the 18th day of continuous protests, the people of Egypt have reached their goal.  The authority of the country has been handed over to the Supreme Council for the Armed Forces.  It is now up to the military to lead the nation to fair and free democratic elections.

    As no one answered “One Week” in our weekly poll, no one wins the secret prize (a new car). It will be interesting to see how the Egyptian go about selecting their new leadership. And of course it will be nice that the Egyptians finally get to select their new leadership.
