Mubarak, your fifteen minutes are up!

If you had asked the average Joe on the street who the leader of Egypt was, I’m sure a lot of blank stars would ensue. Now, in just the span of nineteen days, it seems everyone knows everything about Hosni Mubarak. A name that will now just as quickly be forgotten after he was unceremoniously ousted from office on Friday. So, that’s it then. What used to be fifteen minutes of fame seem now to have inflated out to almost a month. In Mubarak’s case, that was exactly eighteen days, twenty three hours and forty five minutes too long.
