    • Andrew Cuomo, honorary chairman
      Of course he is, the little weasel: ALBANY—Governor Andrew Cuomo will headline an education retreat next month in Lake Placid hosted by hedge-fund managers who support the Common Core standards, charter schools, mayoral control of schools, testing and student-data collection. Cuomo is the “honorary chairman” of Camp Philos, “a philosopher’s camp on education […]

    • Democracy and Size? Can a populous democracy work?
      I, and others, have noted a number of times that the only nation which handled the financial crisis correctly was Iceland: they bailed out ordinary people, let the banks go bankrupt, and jailed bankers who had broken the law. The only one. Iceland’s population is tiny, but it isn’t size, exactly, that matters, what matters [...]

Live from Z park

Dear people,
Thanks for your patience. I had hoped to be able to tweet my pics but the signal down here is either swamped or jammed.
I got here at about 8:30am. Z park was empty. There is a police tower at the west end of the park. Imagine being in a stalag with the guard tower watching every move you make.
There are police everywhere. When I first got here, I couldn’t figure out where the protest was and thought that maybe it fizzled. Au contraire. There are thousands of people down here, but we always like more.
I found the occupiers at William and Pine. It was a small contingent of a couple hundred. I had been standing there only a short time before someone announced that we had shut down the NYSE. shortly afterwards, the klezmer band came down the street and there was dancing on the sidewalk.
I walked to Pine and Nassau to find a *much* bigger crowd around the intersection doing a mic check in waves. At that point, you could see the NYSE about 500 ft away. Very impressive. We have now moved back to Z park and I’m sitting on a bench surrounded by occupiers making a lot of noise. The park has filled up from nearly empty to nearly full in the past couple of minutes. Amazing.
I have a lot of pictures and will post as soon as possible.

I can answer questions if you have them. Have at it.

On the ground in Denver

The paint is fresh at PUMA HQ.  We’re located right next to the Police Department so we shouldbe relatively safe.  There are cops EVERYWHERE.  It’slike a lice infestation.  On the way from the airport, we passed three bike medics.  That’s right, they have their equipment in paneers(sp) on the back ot their bikes.  Rill says she’s seen police on bikes too but she can’t quite take them seriously.

People are arriving as we speak.  Darragh’s mom is here.  DancesWithPumas is here.

MarylandPUMA, TruthIsGold and some of the documentary film crew.  Murphy is out getting some stuff from the rental store.  We’re setting up tables, getting the swag together and generally having a good time.  We’ve got Aretha Franklin on the laptop speakers.

Yeah! More later.
in the meantime, the Declaration has been updated:
