The New York Times ran a patronizing and snarky story about Occupy Wall Street, mocking the protesters who are, let's admit it, a motley crew. But I guess yesterday will make them reconsider just a little, because the march from Zuccotti Park at noon, around Wall Street and then up Broadway and Fifth Avenue, spilled over the sidewalks and literally took over streets, while police tried in vain to confine the burgeoning crowd. At times they looked like the keystone cops in their clumsy attempts to keep traffic flowing, and then, in fear and fury, they attacked. Honestly, it was terrifying. The video I took (note the dying trees!) ends when I barely snuck through the kettling, a tactic used in Europe that the NYPD is learning on the fly, just before dozens were arrested. It turns out there is one situation where wrinkles and grey hair are an advantage.
