Meanwhile, at the other protest

OLYMPIA — Not far from the un-U.N. Day protest on the Capitol steps is the 99%-Occupy Olympia protest. They have a nice place to set up tents, between Capitol Lake and the Budd Bay Harbor, as the leaves are changing for autumn.

But it is getting a bit chilly at night here, so we'll see if the number of tents starts to decline.

As the crow flies, they're about a half mile from the Capitol and today's Tea Party endorsed un-U.N. Day demonstration. When it comes to economic theory, they're light years apart. On political philosophy, they're at that spot where, if one person goes far enough to the left and another goes far enough to the right, some of their beliefs, like a deep suspicion of government, start to meet about 180 degrees away from the middle.
