Bag’s Take-Away:

What’s really knocking me out (and, from the beginning convinced me that Occupy Wall Street was going to gain traction) is the unique and daily creative and poignant mixing of metaphors and cultural symbolism. The photographer, Steven Boling, passed this along today from his website.  This photo resonates in so many different directions, not just deepening how we relate to the word “occupy,” but also communicating how broadly the action is touching people, young and old, patriotic and anarchistic, vet and civilian. Of course, it’s also powerfully anti-war, as much from a moral standpoint as an economic one.
