This news garnered only a rakish grin and chuckle from local tour guide, though others were not so flippant.  Consensus amongst Jordanian nationals and American ex-pat academics is that the minor protests and political goings-on in The Kingdom lately would be getting much less international attention if not for the situations in Tunisia and Egypt.  A keen judgment, but their incentives are aligned so as they would benefit most from placating me and my peers.  Personally, I have no idea how to take the news.  Seems serious to this outsider.
