Well, for starters, the army is consolidating its control, running day to day affairs, and telling the Egyptian people that the country would be ready for elections in about six months. As the story indicates, there are a number of people who are prepared to start protests anew if the army does not move quickly enough to establish a more democratic governmental system in the aftermath of Hosni Mubarak’s ouster.

Meanwhile, behold one of the downsides of the protests: At least 17 historical artifacts, including a wooden statue of King Tut, are missing from the Egyptian Museum of Cairo.
