Flash: Mubarak dead?

I dont usually report rumors: and there are many rumors about Arab leaders, almost daily. I remember growing up the times we prematurely celebrated the death of many Arab dictators, only to learn that the man is not dead--unlike Prince Sultan (who is very dead). But a very reliable academic in Cairo is informing me that there are strong rumors that Mubarak has died. I told my source that she will be receiving a gift if this is true.
