Live-blogging OWS daily since October 1.  Email: epic1934@aol.com. All times ET.   See my e-book on Occupy "40 Days That Shook the World."  My OWS-relevant "Journeys With Beethoven" just published in print and e-book, my other books here

5:25 Even Crain’s covers tomorrow’s Occupy anti-BOA actions…

4:10: Ha:  "Why I Am Joining Goldman Sachs." 

4:00  Occupyers in New Haven now given until March 28 to stay, after legal battle…

3:40  Guess what, there are almost no African-Americans running in major parties for U.S. Senator or governor this year.   One view why.

2:40  Matt Taibbi on Goldman exec’s NYT oped (see below).   "The resignation will have an effect on Goldman’s business. The firm’s share price opened this morning at 124.52; it’s down to 120.72 as of this writing (it dropped two percent while I was writing this blog), and it will probably dive further. Why? Because you can stack all the exposés on Goldman you want by degenerates like me and the McClatchy group, and you can even have a Senate subcommittee call for your executives to be tried for perjury, but that doesn’t necessarily move the Street."  See update at bottom of Taibbi’s piece for Goldman’s blowback.

 11:15 Protest at Romney fundraiser in NYC underway.  You might follow Tim Pool @timcast or @allisonkilkenny.

9:50 Email to me from OccupyHomes Minnesota:  "On Wednesday, March 14, at 5:00pm Occupy Homes MN will hold a march to US Bank CEO Richard Davis’ Minneapolis home as part of the Occupy Homes national week of action on the banks. The march will be led by the family of homeowner Monique White, Vietnam Veteran John Vinje and others facing foreclosure and eviction at the hands of US Bank, demanding that US bank negotiate with them rather than throw them out of their homes. ‘We want to respectfully ask Mr. Davis and US Bank to work with customers like me to keep us in our homes. We bailed them out with our tax dollars when they were in trouble at the start of the housing crisis they created, now we need them to work with us to help stabilize our communities, instead of tearing them apart,’ said Monique White.

"Since October, protesters have attempted to bring attention to Minneapolis-headquartered US Bank for their ongoing role in the foreclosure crisis. While speaking at an event hosted by the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, Davis, whose 2011 total compensation topped $18 million, allegedly told homeowners fighting foreclosure and their supporters rallying outside the event to ‘get over it.’"

8:50  Occupy to protest Romney fundraiser in NYC today. "Demonstrators will gather outside the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in midtown at 11 a.m. to slam Romney as a ‘1 percenter.’ According to protester Han Shan, faux-supporters of the former Massachusetts governor will be ‘dressed to the nines’ in top hats and monocles."

8:30 LSU college student: OWS fading, needs a leader, should "stop being hipsters" and wake up…. Huh? The Christian Bale movie Newsies hitting Broadway now as a musical and is said to be OWS friendly now.

8:20 Getting major attention: New op-ed in NYT by a top Goldman Sachs guy on why he is now leaving–because it’s as "toxic" there as ever. "The firm has veered so far from the place I joined right out of college that I can no longer in good conscience say that I identify with what it stands for… People who care only about making money will not sustain this firm — or the trust of its clients — for very much longer."  But Andy Borowitz tweets:  "Man Takes Twelve Years to Realize that Goldman is Bunch of Dick."

8:10 Fairly shocking NYT account on global warming causing sea level rise, Florida most threatened.

7:40  Daily Occupier has launched,  check it out at this site.

From late Tuesday

How Occupy spent $700,000 since October, as itemized by Atlantic Wire.  From Metrocards to t-shirts.  Salon has its own take here, and points to some independent efforts.

A Wall Street favorite may lose a primary in Alabama tonight — and it’s not Mitt Romney.

We covered the tribute to OWS patron saint Woody Guthrie below, and now here is the topper: The Flaming Lips playing his great song "Vigilante Man" on…iPads.

From my assistant Elizabeth Whitman:  Five people have been charged with the misdemeanor of resisting arrest at UC Berkeley Occupy protests last November. Among them are four students and one professor. The professor said that the charges were odd given that authorities used excessive force at the demonstration.
