Egypt's Challenges - Around the Corner, and Down the Road

Egyptians' joy will linger long, but many challenges lie well down the road, as well as right around that corner they've just turned.  Anthony Shadid makes a nice stab at many of them in his NY Times analysis today.  I also recommend reading George Saghir's recent take (first posted to Joshua Landis' excellent Syria Comment blog) on what faces Syria, which hasn't turned that corner, but where the problems mirror those in Egypt - among them, skyrocketing population growth coupled with poor economic performance.
