Scenarios Reinvent Coup

a mess an opportunity an excuse to reinvent oneself
nobody journalistic to hear who excites or informs
malaise rooted in crippling reliance on opinion polls

hinges on our ability to establish what happened
different scenarios and assumptions foolish to speculate
400-metre police cordon expected in place until Monday

charges often vague evidence elusive arrests come swiftly
crush people angry enough to support a coup
silence dissent, ask very few questions

-- Clark Allison

The rising poverty of American political journalism
Wait to recover bodies following Norfolk helicopter crash
In Egypt, many shrug as freedoms disappear
