Guess who went and got the video?

Al Jazeera. I've got to read them more often. They really are rather like the BBC! No wonder Bush wanted to bomb them.

if certain politicians were to come out on the side of the tent city dwellers. Go down there, bring the cameras, give a big speech about America's shame and Christian compassion and the need to take care of our own. Would it be worth anything, I wonder, for a politician to come out in righteous indignation on this issue?

Where things had to get visibly, undeniably bad before we could get any meaningful response from the government. I'd rather hoped that we could avoid it having to come to that, but it looks like we can't. So bring on the foreclosure mobs and the general strikes.
