my apologies to al

with basically all the non-arabic speakers i know who are closely following what is going on in egypt doing so through the al jazeera english site, i guess it's time for me to admit that i was totally wrong to predict it would flop back when it launched in 2006.

it just shows the limits of my imagination, but i never in a million years would have guessed that the american spectator would be recommending al jazeera to its readers. i'm even beginning to think that this crisis might finally get u.s. cable companies to start carrying the channel. but given my track record, maybe a surer bet is that it won't happen.
