Since the majority of Americans get cranky at the idea of "protests" (even if in their best interests) I was thinking one thing that Occupy could do to win over the populace would be to relabel the "protests" celebrations. Celebrate in advance the break up of big banks, big oil, big corporations and the passage of progressive taxes plus giving tax breaks breaks to the middle class where they are direly needed. It's just psychological but the public might be more up for a party than a protest.

I like the idea of Occupy parties, Occupy picnics, Occupy Festivals. Thanks for the inspiring idea.

Nuclear Plant Has Been Leaking For Four Years

According to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Entergy Corp has allowed highly radioactive waste to leak into a contained area at the FitzPatrick nuclear power plant for the last four years.

The FitzPatrick plant is near Oswego, New York, but the NRC has said that the leak "poses no immediate risks to any residents or the environment."
