End the Fed

In Chicago today and just walked by the Occupy Wall Street protests in the city's financial district. There are at least 100 protestors, many dressed in business clothes, a huge drum that several beat, police and bystanders everywhere. It has the feel of a true movement. Could it be the sign of real change coming? It had a certain 1960s protest energy. My favorite sign: We are the 99 percent. And unlike Spokane's small protest, this Chicago protest looks like the 99 percent who do not hold the nation's wealth were well represented.
