    I agree with the Raven and the reform that should have followed the bailout didn't happen.  I just spent a depressing twenty minutes reading blog responses to an article in The Oregonian about arrests overnight in Jamison Square of OWS protesters.  Things went along fairly smoothly with Portland OWS until a group decided to move into an affluent residential area of the downtown.  The angry and rabid responses on the blog are typical of working class folks who feel they made their middle class success in a vacuum.  If the changing of the conversation results in reform, then even bigots and TPrs will benefit.  I won't hold my breath that the protest will gain any respect from these folks though.
