Welcome to the world Larry. After the smoke has cleared and everyone has figured out that the "occupiers" never were organized, never had an agenda other than to do anything that would gain attention to that fact here comes (Lay it on the line Larry) spouting the obvious. Where were you when (they) wanted to defend their First Amendment Rights without a clear understanding of what they are? You as a Journalism teacher should have made this commentry then, in person, rather than write a "me too" after the show is over.
that is by far the weirdest thing i have ever heard people doing to voice their first amendment. and they apparently did it for no reason since the government can control that type of "free expression". people now a days call themselves speaking their mind and what not when doing things like this, but in all reality, they are just harming the environment and the people in that community. and doing in doing so, it makes a bad name for you. there are so many other ways to express yourself... choose one!!
