CAIRO — Five Egyptian military helicopters trailing national flags circled over Cairo Monday after the armed forces gave politicians 48 hours to resolve a crisis over calls for the resignation of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, according to Reuters

Anti-Morsi protesters rallying in the central Tahrir Square, where a 2011 uprising overthrew autocratic President Hosni Mubarak, cheered as the choppers flew overhead.

Earlier, five of Morsi's Cabinet ministers met to consider resigning their posts and joining the mass protests, according to Egypt's official news agency MENA,The Associated Press reported.

News of their meeting followed an ultimatum to Morsi by the organizers of the protests to step down by 5 p.m. Tuesday. They also called on the military and the police to clearly state their support for the protesters.

Sunday, millions of Egyptians took to the streets in Cairo and across much of the nation to demand Morsi's ouster.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
