Egypt's Referendum Day (part 1)

It's a chilly, smoggy morning in Cairo as Egyptians (how many?  and of what "persuasion"? - these are 2 of the biggest questions) go to the polls today to begin voting on an Islamist-crafted Constitution.  Only about half of Egypt votes today; the other half next Saturday.

My friend Abduh is already out at the polls with reporters.  He (and I) will update things as the day progresses.  Stay tuned!
