    As far as Occupy's effect on the election, I also wonder...well, when a message is co-opted by the elite, to what extent does that lead to a de-fanging of that message? I'm not counting OWS yet, I'm just pointing out a historical pattern and wondering how that will play out here? I mean, how many of my college classmates happily devoured Marxist theory taught by well-heeled professors only to go on to become corporate lawyers and such? And look at how MLL has been turned into a teddy bear by the white elite, a teddy bear who's work is supposedly done. I'm not saying I hear the death knell of OWS, I'm just wondering where this co-opting will lead, and maybe I'm just too damn cynical for my own good.
    I look forward to your next diary, whenever it will come.
