Could Occupy Wall Street be Legit?

I can't stand hippies with puppets...and demonstrations in general are not my thing...and muddled messages will not receive my my initial reaction to OWS was that it was anti-World-Bank-esque bullshit.

Buuuuut....I dunno. They've had more stick-to-it-iveness than I'd have predicted. I'm still not sure that they are sure exactly what they want...but popularity polls seem to suggest that my fears of a backlash were unfounded.

It'd be pretty awesome if I was wrong about this.

So I went to an occupy event today; it's a lot of fun. Plenty of music, some of it very good; little kids dancing; and yes, a bunch of folks who were a bit out there. Including the La Rouchies, who never miss a trick. Also some street preachers foretelling the end times.

Actually it was a lot of gym, and I'm very glad to have been outside on a beautiful fall day in Seattle.

Hey Winst, remember how you said the OWS types should read a book? Well...
