I'm kind of a news junkie, so I've been following along with the major events of the Egyptian revolution, still chugging along for the past three years. Former president Mohamed Morsi pops up in court every so often to hear the mix of charges he's facing, most of them farcical. The prosecutor seems to be taking them seriously though, and titled the results of his investigation "The Biggest Case of Conspiracy in Egypt." Morsi disrupted his first hearing, so they had to figure out a way to keep the show trial running according to script. The solution they engineered was to seal him and his co-defendants in a soundproof glass cube, hopefully with air holes or an independent oxygen supply or something.

I don't have a whole lot of insight into all the twists and turns going on in Egypt since February 2011, but I do have this: Damn, that's a long way to fall when you go from holding the reins of power to jumping around in a fishbowl yelling "I am the legitimate President of Egypt!" before they cut your microphone out and leave you waving your hands and working your lips like an angry mime.
