Criminal Blogging

An Egyptian court has charged a blogger for criticizing his university and the government, and now have sentenced him to four years in prison. And these guys are supposed to be our moderate friends.

Even I can’t stretch the definition of “moderate” far enough to cover a government that will commit such an outrage.

Hat tip: Dispatches from the Culture Wars. Ed’s comments on this are very well written and to the point, and he’s one of the few people I know who are 100% consistent on this type of free speech issue.
