Egyptians celebrate

Mubarak is gone. What's ahead will be hard -- and perhaps not everything these brave exhilarated protesters wish. But today the unimaginable has come about because the people demanded it.

The ripples of possibility that spread out from their achievement will lap at authoritarian governments across the world and discomfit every regime that counts on the immutability of existing arrangements. (Yes, that includes Tel Aviv and Washington!)

End of history, indeed!
