Report: OccupyLA becoming class distinct


Maybe an unnamed NPR editor slanted it this way, maybe the reporter sought the kind of story she wanted to tell.  But you get a feeling from this audio report on Occupy LA that the protesters are drawing up class distinctions among themselves and don't really know what they're protesting anymore.

Also: a hundred protesters, on hearing of the crackdown in New York last night, marched to the Nokia Theater and back, and the City issued a tactical alert.  If you find it interesting that the city worries more about protesters marching on the Nokia Theater than it does about protesters buying nickel bags at City Hall, so do I.
