       Permits issued.  Respectful of Pasadena traditions, non violent,  etc.   Web site.  Occupy The Rose Bowl Parade.com.   Reportedly will be at or near the end of the parade.  Possibly separate after the end.

      Without public leadership showering the news shows, occupy ws is quickly fading from the majority of voters.  Keeping it leaderless--without spokespeople, is a case of theory and purity not being up to the job at hand.

      A float, with a message, is softball on a hardball field.  Cute, but overpowered.

      Apres Bush, le deluge.

        I have no idea what's going to happen in 2012 but I have hope that OWS has helped change the agenda of the Democratic party. Income inequality and increased taxation of million dollar a year incomes is now on the table. That's progress.

        And watching Jesse take on Fox news and corporate corruption was wonderful.

        I have hope for the new year.

        look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.

         you say.   Believe it is true that without Serious GOTV efforts - like past Rovian Mid term Tweeter campaign- counting votes near the polls as they did at Mid terms, nothing will change. Without serious voter lists and voter Co-operation,  things will not change.   But the public also has noticed Occupy and agree with most of their prinicpals  99% and all.   The feat will be to grow continue and merge all these efforts to elect more Progressive democrats this November.
