Here are my cartoons on the continuing protests in Egypt. The best part about covering a story that “has legs” is it allows you to explore multiple aspects of an event from different perspectives as it develops.

With 30 years in the saddle, Mubarak had a pretty good run. Time to retire, particularly since things will only get worse.
In case one has not noticed, the price is food has hit something like a 30 year high while food reserves are at something like a 30 year low. Prices should go consideratbly higher given the floods and all in Australia. The list of endangered countries keeps growing and now includes much of Africa and south Asia, plus North Korea. If the northern hemisphere does not have a very good year for agriculture, poorer countries may be unable to feed their populations because those normally with large surpluses (Canada, United States, Australia, Vietnam, Argentina, et al) will tend to keep a bit extra at home to ensure their own welfare. There have already been food riots of note over the past couple of years. In places like the Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, or Bangla Desh it may become a matter of those with guns eat, and those without die. If things get really bad, India could become unstable as well.
Instability is the hallmark of freedom. A leading indicator, you might say.
Ha! Good stuff!
