Meanwhile, over on Wall Street ...

And here's this quote from the NY Times:

A line of police officers surged into the crowd, shoving protestors to the sidewalk, grabbing some and hurling them to the ground, and using long batons to strike others with overhand blows. Officers then walked up Beaver Street pushing the crowd back. Many of the protestors moved around the corner joining another group sitting in a circle, at the intersection of William Street and Exchange Place.

I just can't say how inspiring this is, that regular people are willing to stand up, take a beating, and refuse to stop demanding economic justice in a cock-eyed world that defines "liberty" entirely as an issue of property rights and unfettered commerce. I only wish I could be at the intersection of William and Exchange right now. But for those who are, you have my undying respect and admiration.
