    I heard about Occupy Berkeley on campus, so I went down town for lunch today and decided to stop by the Occupy Berkeley Center......well, for the one time center of the free speech movement,I was underwhelmed, not a whole lot of occupying going on it appears...

    I counted 6 people. 3 of dubious street origins and 3 who seemed to be just hanging out waiting on the other occupiers.

    some pics I took. The gentleman in the orange shirt in the left rear of the shots is Wry Catcher I think....apparently occupation is a tiring business. :rolleyes:

    Since Berkeley is already full of hippies and ne'er-do-wells, I would think that the occupation may require people with actual jobs and/or a purpose in life to show up as an opposition to their status quo.

    I hope they burn the place to the ground. It would be good for the whole country if they did.

    Apparently, 1,000 countries around the world are protesting. According to Diane Sawyer... whose knowledge of geography appears to need more study.
