I got a little blowback from Occupy folks from yesterday's Op-Ed. Undeserved methinks, I don't think I am alone in not understanding the message behind the port protest and worrying that they are losing the plot, but I'm glad folks are paying attention.
But, since then I have had to have a root canal and my son told me he supports Tottenham Hotspur. So if you are upset with me, don't worry the fates have punished me sufficiently.
Today I take a break from blogging to convalesce.
Update: A reader admonished me for my statement that "...the vast majority of American citizens, who have not seen their standard of living improve in two generations."
I agree, I had intended to write "substantially improve" but failed. My bad. But the motivation of the Occupy movement and it's supporters was not the point.
I have also been taken to task for both criticizing and supporting the Occupy movement. I was doing neither - I understand from whence the passion comes, but don't know if I agree with the remedies proposed, because I have not heard much about their remedies. Which was the part pf the point of the Op-Ed.
