Cops Kill 20 in Guinea, President Should Go

The BBC reporter in neighboring Guinea attended a march today that he estimated at 70,000 people. Not that crowd estimates are ever accurate or neutral, but even if he's off by half, that's a lot of people.

If you've been president for 22 years, and you've got debilitating health problems, and tens of thousands are marching for your ouster, and all you can think to do is call on the military for greater loyalty, I say it's time to go. Bow out gracefully and call for elections or something.
