After yesterday's bloody crackdown, Friday prayers were followed by an uneasy calm in Cairo's Tahrir Square. The military has increased its presence, and visitors have included Defense Minister Marshal Mohamed Tantawi, who was cheered while reviewing the soldiers. Protesters are still calling this the "Day of Departure." Also, a conversation with Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, and her critics. Is strict, Chinese parenting the way to make a nation succeed?
