Bloomberg had the wrong target yesterday...

It was a tumultuous day for Occupy Wall Street yesterday.  First came the violent eviction in the early morning hours – then the court ruling allowing the patriots to re-enter Zuccotti Park – then another court ruling forbidding them from bringing any tents, tarps, or camping gear into the park.  But in the end – the patriots have resumed their occupation.  Without gear – hundreds of Occupy Wall Streets demonstrators s
