They have finally put Egypt’s former President Hosni Mubarak on trial in Egypt. He has been trying to get out of taking responsibility for his crimes during his dictatorship by saying he was “too sick” to stand trial. Don’y you just love a faker? Didn’t we all used to do this when we were kids when we didn’t want to go to school? Source of this news story: CNN.com.

The trial of Egypt’s former President Hosni Mubarak resumed Monday behind closed doors, while outside the courtroom clashes broke out between police and families of those killed in the uprising that led to his ouster.

Mubarak is charged with ordering the killing of protesters to quash the uprising in February that brought about an end to his 30-year rule. He faces a possible death penalty, if convicted.

The clashes began when the families of those killed tried to push their way into Cairo’s police academy, the site of the trial. Police used batons to beat them back. The family members, in turn, threw rocks and guard railings at the officers.

Police chased the protesters and family members, beating some and arresting others. After the melee, the riot police circled the entrance of the court and cut off access.

Tsunami in Japan

tsunami in JapanLike I said in my previous posting, the tsunami in Japan was bad news. Just watching the news on the TV and all the videos made me think of how terrible this has been for the Japanese people there. It was really terrifying and I can’t imagine how terrifying it must have been for the survivors to watch it. And now they have to rebuild their whole lives. The roads are covered with all the debris that the huge tsunami left in its wake. So many lives were lost and they don’t know how many people actually died yet.

I couldn’t believe it when I watched it on TV how all the buildings and cars were just floating down streets and tossed by the tsunami. It’s so unreal and scarey. Watch the video and see how all the boats and cars just got thrown around by the power of this terrible wave.

Now only was everything wrecked by first the earthquake in Japan and then the tsunami, now they’ve got problems with the nuclear plants. Just tragic.
