I came upon the Occupiers in Amsterdam yesterday. And they're in Rotterdam, Frankfurt, Brussels, they're everywhere. It's an infestation! I guess this thing is now officially global. So I'd like to bless it with its own Senate thread, even at the risk of once again coming across as anti-Americanocentric.
