Mubarak testifies in cage1. Sealy your fate.

2. Brings whole new to appreciation to “going out feet first.”

3. Hannibal Lector? …Right. Hannibal Lecture maybe.

4. You think the junta learned a few things about self-preservation? “Hosni: Meet wolves.”

5. On the other hand, great episode does not a series make.

6. America really is in decline. You mean to tell me, not one of Hosni’s former patrons could have lined up a long-term stay at Club Feb?”

If convicted, Mubarak could face the death penalty. .)
