Live-blogging OWS daily since October 1.  Email: 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.

11:40  Good piece at WSJ by "numbers guy" on how Americans badly and routinely get wrong basic facts and figures on spending by government (not helped by Fox, for sure).  For example, they over-estimate federal spending on PBS and NPR by a factor of one hundred, and think states spend more money on prisons than on education…. Newt G complains that OWS protesters are blocking his "freedom of speech."

10:55 Clever  and funny video below backs actions vs. Citizens United decision starring our friends Katrina, Laura, Cenk, Ben & Jerry, Jim Hightower.   They mock viral videos–yes, cats, babies, and "coning"–so let’s make this one viral.

Polls show Huntsman may actually finish 2nd, showing that conservative GOPers in that state not insane, or religous zealots, unlike in much of rest of nation.    Hooray for the Northeast.

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….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.
