You Don't Care...But Should

Of the few that voted, 75% are optimistic about things in Egypt after Mubarak's ouster, 25% unsure, and 0% pessimistic.

It was a low vote count, but you should care. The government that sits in Cairo controls the Suez Canal, and through it comes the lion's share of Arabian oil coming to the west. Disruption of shipping through the Suez Canal would force tankers around the southern tip of Africa, driving up gasoline prices at the pump.

The new question: do insurance companies care about your health?
