Occupying the rest of the nation is real, more than #OWS

Salon has a great article about this, Occupy the Rust Belt. No Millennials with grad degrees and helicopter moms in the background here. No protests as performance art. Instead, real concerns by real people who had never hoped for Wall Street jobs in the first place.

This is what Occupy Wal Street should be about, itself, but probably won't be.

And, realistically? OWS has four weeks to actually start making statements and taking stands. If Thanksgiving comes, a lot of the Millennials will head back home to their parents rather than get that cold. And holiday shopping season, etc., will cut into the OWS airtime, attention, etc.
