Live-blogging OWS daily since October 1. Email: email@example.com. All times ET. My new e-book is "40 Days That Shook the World: From Occupy Wall St. to Occupy Everywhere." Also my very OWS-relevant "The Campaign of the Century" has just been re-issued, my other books here.
— Go HERE for the Tuesday edition of this blog.
10:30 Wash Post: Romance blossoms at Occupy camps in D.C.– bunch of couples get serious. "As with Occupy encampments on Wall Street and across the country, there have been many more casual hook-ups, bruised hearts and unofficial entanglements." Plenty of condoms passed out, to be sure.
10:20 WSJ with interesting piece on OccupyAlbany (that would be NY, up the river a couple hours from my place). Remember when they finally got evicted not long ago from camp? Now they have settled nearby in …a storefront office.
8:30 Occupy protester engages Romney but hostile crowd and candidate makes it hard.
6:20 Here at The Nation: Naomi Klein and organizer Yotam Marom in a conversation on what’s next for Occupy.
4:40 OWS to protest Jan. 16 at Federal Reserve offices around USA…. More Occupy impact: Chris Matthews (and others) say Bill Daley exit at White House shows Obama about to run strong "anti-Wall Street" campaign
4:35 Joa Baez’s birthday today, so for today’s song pick for OWS, here she is singing "Joe Hill" near Zuccotti two months ago.
4:30 Uncomfortable Romney meeting with a 99 percenter who lacks health insurance.
4:15 Very happy that my popular e-book "Atomic Cover-up" published in print edition this weekend.
3:35 Police in NH probing Gingrich staffer for alleged assault on an young, female OWSer. "Quinn Bowman, a reporter for PBS Newshour who witnessed the incident, agreed with her version of events. ‘Man w earpiece at Gingrich event in Manchester struggles violently to get sign out of female occupier’s hands,’ Bowman tweeted at the time."
