A self-proclaimed weenie finds herself in Cairo during the Arab spring. This story of a wish for a more tranquil Egypt comes from our July 2012 show “Wishful Thinking.”
A warning to our more sensitive listeners: This story contains graphic description of some physical injury that took place during the Egyptian revolution.
