  •  I had mixed feelings about Occupy. (9+ / 0-)

    But part of that is the old fogey in me.

    The older leftist looked askance at the hippy movement of our day also. But yet we all came together in the protests against the Vietnam War.

    So I put aside my skepticism and went up to the first big Occupy event in Austin and got my attitude about the younger generation completely turned around.

    And my admiration for them only increased as they camped out all thru the winter. I kept track of them thru their web site.

    Occupy brot issues to the national attention that no one else was talking about. They changed the national conversation. That was something no one else had been able to do. A movement doesn't have to be perfect in order to do a lot of good.

    Great diary as is per usual, MoT!
