Interesting and, to me, most interesting is the timing of the change

But it's not an official change! Maybe the protestors actually came from Teba, a few miles out of Luxor!
I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!

Self-styled Teba independently and by peaceful means got rid of its governor.

Now it's part of a country-wide demonstration to get rid of an incompetent Morsi/MB government.

Again: Power to the People!

They want to call it "The ancient town of Thebes" but they keep pronouncing the "B" as "V" ;)

Better changing the name of the city against the natural life spans of the people and original designs of its structures I say. :up And now moody Morsi has said 'up yours' to the army, could be a lot more changing soon.
