It's Not A Show!

Since everything is like a TV show in America, the Occupy Wall Street protests seem like just another TV show, right?  Another show being broadcast every day.  And you can surf past, or choose another channel, or hit the mute button, and just watch all the pretty pictures.

Still, the reality of it all slowly starts to seep into your consciousness.  There are people in the streets all across America.  There is social unrest.  It is here. In the streets.  And for every person marching or occupying, there are many more who are standing on the sidelines who sympathize with the cause.  

It's on the lips of everyone you know.  Now that may be a small circle of people, but it cuts across a pretty interesting cross-section of the population.  People aware, awake, and they are all pretty convinced that things are fucked up beyond repair.

Lots of people.  Across the nation.  Unhappy with the status quo.  This is a story.  A major story of our times.
