Editor's Note: Stephen Franklin did not come into journalism as a blogger. He's an old school, well respected newspaper man. Among other subjects, he covered the Middle East for the Chicago Tribune. After winning a fellowship to teach in Egypt in 2007, his journalistic life changed. Blogging was where the smartest young journalists could work freely. Franklin admits that Arab bloggers became his obsession.
