Things to Know - 23 November


1.  Thom Hartmann with the text and video of the news.  Easy:

2.  Matt Taibbi from Rolling Stone on the shameless conduct by police in dealing with a non-violent group of Occupy protesters.  It is from events like this that the reconstitution of OWS will change the fabric of our future:
