GREENWICH - A Greenwich man is expressing disappointment after the president of Egypt refused to step down yesterday.

Reports had indicated Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak would bow to weeks of public protests and resign last night.

Instead, he transferred power to his vice president, but vowed to stay in office until September.

Egypt's military responded by throwing its weight behind the president's decision.

That has further enraged protesters who promise massive rallies today including a possible demonstration at the presidential palace.

Back in Connecticut, Greenwich resident Moe Gad was playing close attention.

The restaurateur says Mubarak is "not listening, he's not in touch with reality, he's not in touch with the people."
