Uneasy lies the empty head in Jordan

""I view the king the same as [former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and his fate will be the same," said Zaid Najdawi, a criminal attorney.
Beside him walked his friend, Khalid Frehat, a computer science professor, who was carrying a framed loaf of pita bread on which he had written, “I hate you Abdullah.”
“The Jordanians don't want bread, we want to send a message that we want dignity," he said. “The Arab citizen is always linking stability with a loaf of bread as if that's all we wanted. The problems are many, there is no political program or economic program or social program.""
