This is looking a lot like Egypt…

Source: AP

I know that I took some risk scheduling another Spring Break class in the Middle East after my trip to Cairo was canceled.

I know, I know.

And I know that calls for democracy can spring up even in relatively stable countries with lots of wealth.

I know, I know.

So I shouldn’t be surprised that protests have begun in Bahrain, my new Spring Break class destination. But I was surprised and disheartened this morning to hear that police resorted to violence last night.

I have a feeling Bahrain — at least as far as my Spring Break is concerned — may go the way of Cairo.
