Egypt after Hosni Mubarak, now what happens?

Hosni Mubarak has stepped down as president, and weeks of demonstration by protestors are subsiding. However, as the military takes over many questions remain.

MY TAKE: The action over the past few days is a historic victory by the Egyptian people. The challenges ahead include how the transitional government will evolve and how the issues of significant poverty and high unemployment are managed. My daughter and several of her schoolmates had planned to travel to Israel and Egypt this coming week. Recent events now will limit the trip to Israel. I look forward to her insights about the region when she returns.
