According to news reports, the OWD’ers (Occupy Wilmington Delaware) took to the streets in a good ole fashion march, yesterday. They went down to some of the bank buildings in Delaware to shout slogans, wave signs, and just have fun. But, no one came to watch… (other than the requisite news reporter, of course). Why?
Friday was Veterans Day, a bank holiday. Yesterday was Saturday. Today is Sunday. So, this wily gang of sleep deprived protesters held their march on the hump day of a three day banking holiday weekend.
Note: I share the group’s anger at the bank bailouts and crony capitalism. What I don’t share is a hooligan’s view on how to solve the problem. In less than 12 months, there will be an election. I suspect that the protesters will vote for more incumbents than I will.
