Things to Know - 11October

Note: J5 has started sending out his Things To Know ("I Juant You To Know") columns the day before now.

1.  Here's an interesting contribution.  E.J. Dionne writes about George Will's column about Elizabeth Warren (in a past edition sent from here):

2.  This contribution from Ketchup (yes, that is her name) is basically a report on what is going on with all these people huddled around in Zuccotti Park.  Conversations, topics of definition of purpose, strategy and tactics, validation of effort, etc.....  The people looking down from on high really have no idea, and they are concerned because it is unlike any protest they have ever heard or seen before, but they know that they are somehow the focus, or what they do is the focus, or something like that:

3.  Robert Reich, always a straight-shooter, and mostly right, gives us a lesson in history, and puts the context of the Wall Street movement in perspective with the current political establishment, and where things may or may not go.  The main point is that it appears that something serious is happening, and we should pay attention and follow the money:

"No tyranny is so irksome as petty tyranny: the officious demands of policemen, government clerks, and electromechanical gadgets."
       -- Edward Abbey
"Imitation is the sincerest form of television."
       -- Fred Allen
"If it weren't for my lawyer, I'd still be in prison. It went a lot faster with two people digging."
       -- Joe Martin
"After all is said and done, a lot more will be said than done."
