Rough.

The video footage on CNN showing NYPD seriously roughing up #OWS protesters is a bit disturbing. Nevertheless, my fearless loyal reader Mr. Born and I intend to join at Foley Square, 5pm.

Are we crazy, foolish, or brave? For myself, I can say I feel a mix of deep disgust and rage at what’s happened to my country over these past few decades at the hands of conservatives, and a heady, childlike optimism that We the People really can change the course of our future for the better. I feel both compelled and honored to support the movement and participate in it as much as I can.

Apropos of absolutely nothing, CNN notes that home foreclosures are rising again.
