I’ve been live-blogging OWS here since October 1.  Doing my best today despite power outage.  Email: epic1934@aol.com.

GO here for the Tuesday edition of this blog.

8:25  Livestream of NY’s famous Halloween parade now Occupied.  Ghoulish.

2:30  Josh Harkinson of Mother Jones, who did some tremendous reporting from NYC, now tweets: A trustworthy activist tells me that an influx of homeless and hardened criminals is causing major issues for Zuccotti campers.  If the rogue elements at the park can’t be tamed, she thinks will relocate to a new site that is more easily defended."…. This is the most grim look at that situation so far (I can’t say if overstated).

12:15  Well-known L.A. Times columnist (and author of The Soloist) Steve Lopez tells Occupyers to quit "the slumber party" and get out and do more action.  One idea: teach-ins on campuses.  And: "Why don’t demonstrators march over to nearby skid row, speak up for those who have lost their homes and then parade from there to the nearest $20-million house in the hills?  While they’re on skid row, why not lend a hand to the bomb-rattled soldiers who fought two ill-conceived wars that cost in the trillions?"

12:00 Today’s song pick for Occupyers everywhere (a daily feature since Oct. 1):  The Beatles’ "Revolution" set to Occupy protest video.  At least no one taking talkin’ about Chairman Mao.  But still relevant: "If you’re talking bout destruction / you can count me out."

He had this to say about Obama: until the president condemns police actions that have injured some protesters, LaGreca doesn’t have much interest in what the White House has to say about the movement. ‘I don’t want to hear about your support until you start coming out and saying, I will not let Americans get fired at with rubber bullets,’ LaGreca said."

9:25 OccupyNashville, after multiple busts, still carrying on — spirit of Johnny Cash present — but where does it go from here?… If yoiu missed Nashville Scene staffer videotaping arrest — his own.

8:15 Occupy Oakland promises "picket support" against companies that discipline workers for taking part in General Strike (and see item below).

8:00  New National Journal poll finds 59% of Americans very or mostly in support of OWS.   "What’s more, many people are paying attention to the rallies. Almost two-thirds of respondents—65 percent—said they’ve heard “a lot” or “some” about the rallies, while 35 percent have said they’ve heard or seen “not too much” or “nothing at all” about the demonstrations."  Six in 10 back a 5% surtax on those making over $1 miilion.

7:55  OccupyRaleigh tweets that police have just given them one hour to pack up and leave… Democracy Now! about to wrap-up weekend in OWS.

7:10   And…he’s back.   This live-blog went dead starting early Saturday afternoon when the surprised HalloStorm hit the northeast, including my town just north of NYC.  Power went out and still out and perhaps for awhile.  I posted a notice here Saturday night and even got one link up yesterday from a very crowded B & N with very slow wi-fi.  Now at a Starbuck and seems pretty good, can also head to a friend’s house nearby.  So check back often and see how I am doing.  Thanks for the jokes about need to OccupyAGenerator.
