Occupy Chicago

The protesters are nestled between the Federal Reserve, Bank of America & the Board of trade. @ lunchtime some traders were engaging in conversation/taunting/flaming with some protesters. It was heartening to see real people engaged in face to face dialog, in person & in real time (& not online).

I told the man in the bottom photo that I'd seen his sign online & that it was my favorite.

He said, "it's my favorite, too!"

    I just read an article that placed the number of people at protests in Indy at "hundreds" with "more than 1000" at the Veterans Memorial Plaza. In Cincy there were "hundreds" as well. In Chicago, according to the MSNBC article, there were "about 100". Maybe we are as tamasic a city as you say. ahhh...
