This "occupy" movement is really interesting to me. Since they're so new there is no real leadership or common message, so the signs they make have a subject matter that ranges all over the place. Within fifty feet of one another I saw signs of how Carl Marx "got it right", how we should "eat the rich" (and similar sentiments), how we should all do yoga, and finally an impassioned plea for shorter parades (to save money).

Eventually they will find a leader and perhaps will turn into something, but for now they are regarded not so much as "protesters", but as complainers. We'll see. One thing is definite; they are frustrated and angry.
