Bag’s Take-Away:

One of the key images rising to the surface from “Eviction Tuesday.” You can’t arrest an idea, but you can try.

Bag’s Take-Away:

1. America’s had as much anxiety as it can handle, thank you very much?

2. U.S. exceeds its protest quota. Media “Occupied out”?

3. GOP Isolationism is catching?

Bag’s Take On Pepper Spray Cop Spraying His Own Cops In City Park:

1. Having to be the big man, Officer Pike — in one shot — reduces peeps to Lilliputians.

2. You bet they’ve circled the wagons.

3. Not sure if it’s Portland, Oakland, or where, but for the next week, at least, could just as well be the Davis cops there.
 
4. What goes around comes around — right, Officer Balogna?

Bag’s Take-Away:

Beware the Split-Screen: Curious to see pics of Obama in Australia perusing war artifacts and, especially, communing with school children while, back home, UC Davis students are getting pepper-sprayed.

(photo 1: Pete Souza/White House caption 1: President Barack Obama tours the Australian War Memorial with Australian Governor-General Quentin Bryce in Canberra, Australia, Nov.17, 2011.) caption 2: President Barack Obama, along with Prime Minister Julia Gillard, visits with students at Campbell High School in Canberra, Australia, Nov.17, 2011.)

Bag’s Take-Aways from #OWS #N17:

Dreadful.


(photo: Mike Segar/Reuters caption: An Occupy Wall Street demonstrator is arrested by New York City Police during what protest organizers called a “Day of Action” in New York November 17, 2011. Hundreds of Occupy Wall Street protesters marched through New York’s financial district toward the stock exchange on Thursday to protest economic inequality at the heart of American capitalism.)

Bag’s Take-Away:

I’d say she’s feeling a bit more than 1% defensive about Occupy. And then, it’s a great example of the class divide, especially when you consider that the women and the kid in the beard share the same color scheme … though I doubt his shirt came from Neiman Marcus.

Bag’s Take-Away:

The symbolism should not be lost on anybody — seeing Occupy protesters marching for economic justice in front of the now shiny-gold Superdome where citizens died waiting for help from Katrina.


(photo: Matthew Hinton/The Times-Picayune  caption: Occupy NOLA protesters parade past the Superdome Thursday, November 17, 2011 in New Orleans, La. The group formed out of solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York City.)

If there’s an iconic shot from today’s OWS face off, it’s the kinetic one of NYPD’s long sticks. (Kinetic meaning, in use.)
