A thirty-year reign ends in eighteen days. Faced with protesters who would not stop protesting, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak finally gives in -- and heads out.
Hasta la vista, Hosni. Ayman Nour -- an opposition leader who was jailed by the now-former President -- reflects on the resignation he never thought he'd see.
She came back to make him leave. A prominent Egyptian feminist came out of exile to join the demonstrations -- and today she was dancing in the streets.
Untying the "not". As in N-O-T -- a one-word addition to a government document that meant a seven million-dollar funding cut to a Canadian aid group.
There is such a thing as a flea launch. And after decades of division in the world of science about how fleas launch themselves, one man jumps to a conclusion.
And...hard-boiled egg...cerpt. A tough-as-nails magazine editor tracks down unpublished short stories by the great Dashiell Hammett -- and when we tighten the screws, the literary shamus spits out the goods.
As It Happens, the Friday edition. Radio that sends you Dashiell through the snow.
