While Egypt struggles to navigate its way through dire economic and political straits, the Egyptian media has become obsessed with a ridiculous detail: was Mubarak's hair dyed jet-black or was it white during the hospital interrogations at Sharm El Sheikh hospital??
The Egyptian media never ceases to surprise and alarm me!! As if this minute detail is what will make or break public opinion!! I wish the media would concentrate on details that really matter like whether we can actually realize Dr. Farouk El Baz's major developmental project, "Mamar El Tanmiya" or whether we can create new jobs for the unemployed and provide housing for the homeless!! Or perhaps relocate the millions who dwell in Cairo's slums??
Surely, to dye or not to dye, is not a valid question. By the way, I personally saw a picture of Mubarak with snow-white hair during the interrogations, while another article stated that his hair was jet-black during the interrogations....so even if you wanted to know the truth, you won't get it because these days you never know the truth anymore with Egyptian newspapers...
There's your chatter galore for the day!!!
