Occupying Our Attention

This Occupy movement is really getting under some people’s skins, isn’t it? Good. Tom Tomorrow has his usual insightful offering here.

My governor isn’t happy:

The governor said he was worried about the effect the protests could have on businesses and the economy.

(Terry) Branstad warned against “attacking people who want to invest and create jobs.”

Sounds like a typical (and not terribly original) GOP talking point we’ve heard from Wall Street. I think the Republicans and their corporate overlords are getting worried. Good.

I confess I was surprised to see rotten tomatoes headlining the Columbus Day weekend at CNS. Silly legislation doesn’t get the anti-business scrutiny if it has GOP and corporate backing, eh?

In local news, I see the Occupy movement has finally come to town. Good. I was wondering when this was going to happen.

    As reported by the usually interesting Rod Dreher, seems like Catholic Distributists have been making the rounds in lower Manhattan.

    I think I’ll take a gander at lunchtime. Perhaps, I’ve been wrong about the protesters.
