A friend of James's was at our place last night: A good kid, about 22 years old and a college student, lives about an hour from the Twin Cities.
At some point Jerry came home, calling a small sign that said "We are the 99%". He had just been to an Occupy protest with about 400 other people over by the University of Minnesota.
James's friend: "What is that, 'We are the 99%'?" He had never heard of the Occupy movement at all.
I blame the kid for not making himself being better informed, of course. But I also blame the media for giving so little attention to the story that a college kid can exist at this moment and not even know it's going on.
