Thoughts on Occupy Wall Street

In this movement of Occupy Wall Street, I have seen some succinct, articulate, informative and stunning fury come forth.  Here are two such articles.

1. From Daily Kos, a compassionate, intelligent open letter by Max Udargo to a guy who considers himself part of the "53% who pay federal taxes and have told people to stop complaining."

2. From Josh Brown, a riveting essay aired on Marketplace Money (NPR).  He was a former Wall Street Broker who is siding with the demonstrators and providing context from inside Wall Street of exactly how very badly all this has gone down.

UPDATE: Also another great piece that goes with these two about how Generation X is simply over it.
