Well, it's that time of the evening again... setting in the lawn chair, finishing off the lukewarm remains of supper on the coleman stove... (actually, Occupy Erie has moved indoors for the winter). So I must occupy this virtual tent. All are welcome to chime in, I have extra chairs. What's on your mind tonite,
Myself, the main thing that wowed me was the news of Brietbart passing so soon after his anti-occupy rant. You know you are accomplishing something when the big guns take you seriously enough to worry about you. And apparently he was taking occupy quite seriously.
Since I have to Occupy in a virtual tentfor now, I guess I better tell you what it looks like. In the spirit of my Irish ancestors who managed to be on the right side of history in the civil war, make my tent plain white canvas of the type used by Union reenactors. I want the most bang for my buck against the klan types. Big enough to stand up in, but small enough to rollup and carry. And I tell you in truth I have hiked with real canvas surplus tents long ago. They are not light. Bbut they are nearly indestructable and have soul that the vinyl taffeta does not. Kinda like me.
I loved last fall talking to other occupiers after events, it was sometimes dead serious and other times absolutely hilarious. We joked around a lot and had fun. I would hate to see this group turn into a dry, lifeless bulliten board of announcements (although we still need them here, but not exclusively!) Or a bunch of cut and pastes of dry ideological differences between competing cliques. The occupy I saw unfold last fall was
alive, had a human face and soul. I would hate to see that change.
I hear the coffee starting to bubble in the pot. (Try to find an old fashioned perky coffe pot lately? Good luck...) Hold your cup out. It's a little strong...
