Bag’s Take-Away:

Photographer Jonathan Gibby sends us this photo from the Occupy Wall Street protest in Los Angeles yesterday. If juxtaposing a victim of long-term homeless with marchers at yesterday’s anti-Wall St. rally in L.A. is random in some ways, the fact that people are falling into indigency as a result of the the mortgage meltdown, and the economic reality of “two America’s,” certainly isn’t. Above all, though, I would say that the photo (given the sign as its fulcrum) is a cautionary warning about really being heard.
