- A bunch of clowns were arrested for molesting the Wall Street bull.
- Rolling Stone shows how Republicans have become the “Party of the One Percent.”
- Concerned about the New York Post having the sole monopoly on sensationalist OWS coverage, the Daily News upped the ante and sent in an expert to take a reading on how loud the drums are and the results were horrific. Drumming is now downright “dangerous.”
- The march from Zuccotti Park to Washington D.C. has begun and protesters are expected to arrive in the nation’s capital in about two weeks. Couldn’t they occupy some Amtrak trains?
- To all the people who claim that Occupy Wall Street is not going to make a difference and has no clear demands, sociologist Nina Eliasoph disagrees, and says the movement has “started to change the debate in the country.”
- Just like the Republicans and Democrats, Occupy Wall Street also has strange fringe element and for the most part, has embraced it.
- The New York Times reports on the crime problem at Zuccotti Park, but this is the most important nugget in the whole story: “Plainclothes officers have entered the park to keep the department apprised of planned marches.”
- Videoman Joey Boots has footage of the entire Crosby and Nash concert at Zuccotti Park. Of course he does.
- And finally, we whipped up a handy map that should help keep Occupy Wall Street protesters from getting lost. It’s all about Broadway baby! Download the high res version here.
