Egypt: Poetic dissent falls on deaf ears
Is anyone surprised that Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak refuses to step down? Certainly not Egyptian poet and Georgetown University visiting professor Tamim al-Barghouti. He recently joined "Studio 360" to discuss art as a device for opposing tyranny in the Arab world. But, he pointed out dismally, Mubarak has a motto: "You say what you want. We do what we want."
