Unless you’ve tuned out all forms of communication you now know about the “Occupy Wall Street” protests and their various offshoots across the country. There are now hundreds of similar rolling protests in cities across the country. Their general theme is reform of the financial sector and help for the struggling U.S. economy. “We are the 99%” is the rallying cry — a reference to wealthiest 1% of Americans whom the protesters believe should pay more in taxes.

The local version is called “Occupy DC” and protesters are in two places — McPherson Square (just south of our neighborhood) and Freedom Plaza.

So, how do you feel about the protests here in DC? Will you join them?
