Occupy Wall Street
I work a few blocks from the Occupy Wall Street headquarters in the Financial District. Yesterday I walked over while on my lunch break and spent some time in the park, observing. It gave me a distinctly hopeful feeling, and I plan on returning tomorrow with Chris and Eliot. I like to think that this will not be the last peaceful demonstration that Eliot will be a part of. And I have to believe that what is happening there will help his future, and that of his generation.
On this note, Paul Krugman wrote a terrific op-ed today: nytimes.com/2011/10/07/opinion/krugman-confronting-the-malefactors.html?src=ISMR_HP_LO_MST_FB
