During my 30-minute constitutional yesterday, I passed by the “Occupy DC” site at MacPherson Square. Not much in the way of ‘occupying anything, a couple of tents I saw were certainly not occupied. There was a new addition, a flag for the cause de jour, a bright orange pennant with a print of that army private, not on trial for passing classified information on to Wikileaks. And spotted a very small knot of uncomfortable-looking “occupiers” standing around in the rain and chill with a look that said “Like dude, being here is not cool”. We’ll see what they do once the really harsh weather comes, and that should be no more than a few weeks away.
Also noticed the encampment is right across the street from an ACLU office. Coincidence perhaps or savvy planning?
Seemed too most offices are indeed closed for ‘tween week as there were very few lights visible from the street.
Have an interview with yet another agency for yet another project, which if I survive the hours, will probably earn me enough $$$ that I needn’t work from the remainder of 2012.
