Mubarak: An ego as big as Egypt itself

The ousted leader wears pinstriped suits, with his name making up stripes.

You must have an uncle with his initials stitched into his socks, or maybe your mom sewed your name into your underwear before going off to camp.

But if you were the leader of Egypt for three decades, you'd have a suit like Hosni Mubarak's. Us regular fancy people wear pinstriped duds, where the stripe is nothing more than a stripe. But Mubarak, who was chased from office last month, took the extra step of using his name to create the white lines running the length of his body.
