Occupy Wall St., Maintain a Presence
All you people in the streets from NYC to Chicago to Seattle and all points in between; when the signs come down and the chants die out and FOXNEWS and MSNBC are not frightened or titillated by you anymore, there is something you need to hear: Anger and protest only gets you so far, and in most cases it gets you nowhere.

Arny Pickholtz' essay on YouTube
I am not that loveable of a person. Hell, you think I don’t know about it, with suckers reminding me about it on a daily basis?
