    If you want to message anything to me, I'd be happy to help. Used to be a newspaper copy editor, among other things...

    But you're probably tired, too!

    If only donkeys could have elephant balls... Occupy!

      I've been walking all day and was forced to check into a hostel as I've lost track of my friend who was in the march tonight.  The police still have my phone and lost my drivers license which is making everything very difficult for me.  I will diary tomorrow.

          I was held over 30 hours without EVER BEING QUESTIONED by police and then suddenly released.  The first 18 hours were spent in a place that is known to be a black area that no lawyer has ever been permitted to go to.  The NLG lawyer that met with all of us was the first lawyer that's ever been there.  Someone has also contacted the ACLU on my behalf.

              into individual interrogation rooms.   After that we were moved to another jail and put in one large holding cell together.  I was in the first group that was released.  The next 3 people released later that day told me that they were given separate jail cells shortly after I left.  These cells were your typical rows of jail cells and did not prevent people from talking to each other.
