Occupy Wall Street

There is this thing going on.  In downtown/ midtown/ uptown Manhattan.  A lot of people are voicing their dismay at how the government isn't our government and how our interests aren't being looked after in any way contiguous with the democratic process in which we try to participate.  People are being corralled, pepper sprayed, pummeled and forgotten. And unless you live in certain foreign countries or have a Facebook or Twitter friend who is following the events, you wouldn't know it was happening.  Mostly because no one is reporting it. Which, honestly, is flabbergasting.  Suffice to say, people are speaking their minds peacefully and orderly, in the best tradition of a democratic union, and they are being persecuted for it.  In New York.  U.S.A.  2011. 
So yeah, good luck to all of us, with that.

guess it's a good idea to stay on top of your push ups in case the lights go out.
