A Brief Update from Egypt

Here’s the latest we have from Egypt:

1. At 2:30 this morning (U.S. Central Time), we received a text message from Meredith informing us that texting, at least, was working again. She said everyone there is well and safe, and advised against putting too much stock in TV news reports. Apparently things there are indeed bad, but not as bad nor as widespread as the news makes it seem.

2. She texted again around 7:30 a.m. with this bulletin:
“Dude, they have Justice League in Arabic on TV!”
3. Cheered by this good news, we then inquired about her well-being, and she replied: "Good. Just chilling for the time being. They’re keeping us within the hotel/airport/airport mall complex until midnight, when my group will be bused to the international terminal.”

(Midnight in Cairo is 4:00 p.m. U.S. Central Time.)

So far, so good. More news as there is news.
