Library Lion Patience says READ!

Love me the NY Public Library Lions and I don't want to leave Patience out of the picture -- or off the blog. The message is the same. Read books and support your local library. Fortitude was featured recently and it is Patience's turn:

Close Your Bank Account and Get Arrested!

After joining with Occupy Wall Street as they took Time Square [see my photos] last night, I woke up to THIS earlier event being featured on Chris Hayes' new MSNBC show, UP with Chris Hayes. It features members of the 99% being arrested for requesting to close their Citibank accounts, including one young woman who was dragged back into the bank by NYPD to be arrested. -- NOT so fine, New York's Finest! -- AFTER I found it on YouTube's nicadyme's channel, blogger extraordinaire Ms. ToniD at posted a reference to it via blogger The Agonist (Sean Paul Kelley)'s excellent analysis. Good stuff all around, check it ALL out, starting with the video:

Occupy Wall Street Note

Still have more catching up to do after a busy work day, but I WAS down to OccupyWallStreet Sunday afternoon and evening. Was drawn into the Political and Electoral Reform working group moderated by Jack Rabbit and Tim and had hoped to return last night but work intervened. I bless those who can just drop everything and go down there. Have pix but need to find time to post them. Must be off on new day but must tell you it WAS a great energy to be down at Liberty Square / Liberty Plaza (I've heard both used) -- Dr. Helen Caldicott and Jeff Madrick spoke to the Sunday evening GA: awesome. (I was wearing a green sweatshirt with an orange cat on it WITH political buttons if you see some older lady in any photos fyi.)
