Is it safe to travel to Egypt right now?

I've looked into government travel advisories which don't mean much because they say you can go but just be on "high alert". It doesn't say you should avoid "non-essential" travel - at least not the Canadian gov't website.
So, my question to the hive is: a) Has anyone traveled to Egypt in the last couple months? b) Does anyone live in Egypt who can share their opinions?
Also don't understand why the advice is to stick to "tourist" areas and yet, tourists are being kidnapped.
Planning to go in to Egypt in September. Want to hit Cairo and Aswan...and well, any other tips would be appreciated on where to go as well!
