The 'youth' revolution in Egypt has a lot of grizzled faces

Russ Vaughn
There is justifiable wide concern over the political unrest in Egypt, attested to by the numbers of articles posted here at American Thinker discussing various aspects of the Obama Administration's Carteresque fumbling and bumbling as the Mid-East roils and boils. However, there is one crisis in Egypt apparently unrecognized as yet in the West in spite of all the news reporting and camera coverage of the events taking place there.

I refer, of course, to the sweeping epidemic of premature aging among the youth of Egypt. Did not The Won tell the world just this very day that this cataclysmic event occurring in the Land of the Pharaohs is a movement led by the youth of Egypt? Observers can only then conclude from watching the many grizzled faces with graying beards and topped by thinning manes among those hordes that something is seriously wrong with the young people fomenting this protest. Far too many of these kids are prematurely old and I mean seriously old before their time. Good grief, some of them are graying even faster than The Won, if you can believe it.

Could it be the water? I emailed my concerns and suspicions to the Egyptian Ministry of Health and got back an immediate but rather muddy denial which gave me pause to consider the rather muddy thinking in the White House. Could Michelle be buying Imam-approved, bottled water from Cairo? When you hold it up to the light can you see little swimming thingies?

Hmmm...
