Rumor Denied: Mubarak Not Dead Yet

Here is the counter-rumor that Mubarak is "safe and well." He's 76 and he may indeed be safe. We'll see about how well he is.

UPDATE: Debka File reports that Mubarak appeared on Egytpian TV Wednesday night to squelch the rumors of his death. Nevertheless, there is no clear line of succession for his position as Egyptian president. One day the rumors will be true. Who will succeed him? This Atlantic Monthly article from last year looks at this issue.
