Occupy Wall Street

An interesting article a couple days ago in the USA Today.
A lot of what it is saying you probably already know, yet it is further a quick look because it does delve a little deeper by speaking to average citizens about their status.

A very sober statement that is true that needs to be called out:
Look in the opposite direction, and there are families such as David Silver and Sarah Washburn, tourists from Oakland who brought their 2-year-old daughter, Siena. "It's a misperception that we're not part of this because we're not uninsured or unemployed," said Washburn, 39, who works for TechSoup, which distributes donated computers and software to non- profits. "We're all on the precipice of being unemployed or uninsured."
