A reader raises a good point:
An hour and a half ago, the government announced Mubarak was going on TV. He still hasn't. There are now reports that protesters are storming the broadcasting studios. I think the fact Mubarak hasn't showed up yet is really important, but has sort of been forgotten in the excitement.

Update: a reader translates:
FYI, the writing on the signs bearing Mubarak’s image say “Dictator Mubarak Get out of Egypt.”
