VastLeft has posted the first installment of videos he shot from OccupyBoston on his site. Not surprisingly, Part I is a great vid. Excellent citizen journalism!
(My apologies if someone has already posted on this, but I didn't see anything when I looked around. Ah well, it deserves to be posted more than once anyway!). Read below the fold...

Despite the historically historic progressively progressive miraculous miracle that is

Femaleness is not some grotesque trait to be mocked; it’s not some character flaw; it’s not some weirdo political stance that is ripe for ridicule.

Even at this late date, the completely undefined a|the "public option" is written about there as if it meant something concrete (other than in the sense of a concrete block used to deep-six single-payer discussion and awareness).
Once again, where are the answers to these six simple questions? Read below the fold...
