You're right. It's hard to listen to the harsh criticisms of OWS too. It doesn't matter whether you agree with them; it doesn't even matter that they're tilting at the wrong windmill. Protest and civil disobedience have a long and illustrious history in this country, and at the very least we owe them some respect. On the other hand, I suppose, civil disobedience wouldn't have such an illustrious history if the practitioners were instead, say, treated to tea and crumpets and handed warm blankets by the authorities....

So. Now we have had, for the most part peaceful, protest suspected of being conservative.
And we have had for the most part, a protest rumored to be liberal.
So where do we go from here?

Well, THAT is kind of the point about OWS. Where are they going and for that matter what were they doing in the first place?? OWS is a 'was', not an 'is' anymore. sad but in reality.....true.
