This just in from Brian Palmer: Like several hundred others, I spent the early hours last Fridaymorning at theOccupy Wall Streetprotest just a couple of blocks north of Wall Street, at Zuccotti Park. I saw clusters of grungy, crunchy kids lounging and talking, several long-haired and funky lefties closer to my age holding forth, giddy tourists angling for photos, plus thousands of uncategorizables. It was chaotic, body-to-body, animated, and relaxed. [read the story] Photos: copyright and courtesy Brian Palmer.
