    I was just thinking that I need to find a book to read while I’m getting my hair dyed tonight and pow, Samhita’s book it is– perfectly affordable on Kindle!

    I am dying for Meg at A Practical Wedding to review this book. She has some great stuff to say.

    I’m curious, as the abuses of Occupy Wall Street continue (police on the public), is there any form of petition that can be signed to draw attention to the black out? Something to make the politicians take note of the publics sentiments towards the actions? Give them gravitas so it’s not entirely dictated inhouse? Is there an OWS legal team?

    I’m against police brutality but some protesters (I’m sure in the minority) go out of their way to provoke the police. All they need is an excuse to hit you and they WILL take advantage. I am on my best behavior whenever I come across police because I know they won’t hesitate to react to anything they consider suspicious regarding certain ethnic groups. I’m not a big fan of protests because with our technology today you can make your voice heard through the internet. It’s not like the pre-internet era when protesting was the only way to get a message across.
