 Below are teasers and inks to a collection of commentaries that I have read. I am making no evaluations or promoting any particular interpretation of wht is happening. I will say that #Occupy Wall St seems to have the mainstream media as confused as Dylan had them in his early years. The event just doesn't fit most of the categories--right, middle, left--that we are used to using to make sense of public evnets.

Reflections on Wall Street
Note: This is a blend of description, analysis, reactions and personal reflections. I am not an organizer or any person of responsibility within the Occupation, I am simply a participant who has been to the Plaza a bunch of times. I have attended General Assemblies, listened to speakers, engaged in conversations, and gone on marches.
