An email from a friend on Occupy Wall Street

this was waiting for me in my inbox this morning...
Interesting - 23 days straight of growing protests outside Wall Street of people with placards and organized marches that is spreading to other points in the country. All saying it's time for financial reform and to bring to justice the banking and wall street people that have not been convicted of the financial collapse of the country. Have you seen much in the papers on it or on the TV?! I haven't. It was a piece on CBS Sunday Morning.

i have repeatedly suggested that his attachment to traditional news media doesn't serve him well in the "keeping informed" department... he thinks he's in touch with what's going on but he's not, and what he IS in touch with is so loaded with corporate, propagandist spin, it's sometimes almost impossible to hold a discussion with him...
