AP: Thousands of protesters in New York demanded an end to income inequality and housing foreclosures. Police fired tear gas to disperse marchers in Oakland, Calif. And black-clad demonstrators smashed windows in Seattle.Black-clad police: hurrah! Black-clad populace: scary! The times may indeed be changing and it's about damn time. Way past, actually. Let's hope real people can make a dent in the corporate monstrosity that is sucking the life out of our country. To all the protesters: I salute you.
