Friends around the world are getting together to celebrate his birthday on Thursday, even if Egyptian State Security decides he is spending it with them because of his solidarity with the people of Gaza.

Here in DC, we'll be getting together at Marx Cafe on Mt. Pleasant St at 7pm:

Where: Marx Cafe
3203 Mt. Pleasant St. NW
Washington, DC
When: Thursday, February 12, 7:00 PM

No particular agenda. Just get together, lift a few cold ones for Phil's release, and maybe chat about ideas if, God forbid, this should go on much longer. We will also take photos and send them to the Rizk's for his and their moral support.

Wow! I didn't know that he got this much press. I heard he was released, which is great.

Incidentally, I'm good friends with his sister-in-law.
