Did I read this right in the New York Times? 32,000 people gathered on or by the Brooklyn Bridge for the Occupy Wall St. march yesterday? And in Chicago, right at rush hour, protesters shut down the LaSalle Street bridge here in Chicago. Just when you thought the movement was dying down, it springs right back up. It's fascinating to watch. How does a regular Chicagoan respond to the Occupy Chicago movement? There aren't a lot of super rich people here (I'm sure there are a few, but still). So how does the 99 percent view it? Let's find out. Good blog idea for next week. I wish Anne Elizabeth Moore was still doing her Revision Street project. That would be an interesting question to ask real Chicago.
B story: My colleagues at work believe that new Chicago Cubs Manager Dale Sveum looks like me:
First off, this guy is much better looking than me. Secondly, it's in the nose. This guy has a regular nose, where I go with more of the hook style nose. Lastly, not all bald guys look alike.
