I am sort of still stunned and probably bit disgusted that
some Hollywood types thought about - imagined future of place like LA
A mere $62.6 billion dollars!
According to new Department of Education data, that’s how much tuition public colleges collected from undergraduates in 2012 in the entire United States. And I’m not being facetious with the word mere, either. The New America Foundation says that the federal government spent a whole $69 billion in 2013 on its hodgepodge of financial aid programs, such as Pell Grants for low-income students, tax breaks, work study funding. And that doesn’t even include loans.

There are actually more posts re:Egypt on this Aug 14 Rabaa attack than Jan25 Tahrir - in Tumblr. Way more. Little personal notes or acts. Note counts are nil or low, but there are more and more.
There are more to be logged but I should wait for a while, first, how much IR expert and journalism types will offer to (well, global) public - analysis, what are the ingredients here, and why they matter - could matter so much - or otherwise. (esp re: how poltical Islam would react - MB etc from now on. Could become a real long new chapter. Or reality might offer more unexpected course of developments.)
So there are more personal posts. Then, how much of good, meaningful, guiding materials would be offered by experts and journalist types in coming days n weeks (not for, ofc, mob making and mob mobilization, like used to.)
Political Tumblrs are not reacting yet, there are just bunch of photos mostly, but ingredients of current crisis in Egypt are real thing.
How much real analysis and articulations, and prospects and perspectives will be there - publicly, or - otherwise.
Love it or loath it, this is a truly historic speech by Obama, no US president has ever spoken like this to Israelis #obamainisrael— Chemi Shalev (@ChemiShalev) March 21, 2013
