    How multi-generational is Occupy Harrisburg? Last Friday I visited OWS NYC. I was pleasantly surprised how mult-generational the participants and vistors were. Everybody was welcome to participate in discussions, ask questions and comment. Older people were encouraged to valuable perpectives on many aspects of recent American history to younger participants. Younger people were encouraged to interact with others who did not meet a traditional student age requirement. It was remarkably civilized, with hundreds of international tourists participating, taking photos etc. Most of the middel aged people(35-50 year olds) participants were focused on the loss of small business opportunites as a result of the big box revolution or they were people who had partiparted in the NYC banking/investmetn scene and could not tolerate any longer. The majority of the conversations though involved people though were either under about 30 -32 or over 55-60. Is Occupy Harrisburg open to all or is it primarily a student movement?
    PS One of the people I spoke with at length was a PSU student who was so distraught by the football scandal he left State College last Thursday night. We talked at length about the value of the University beyond football. We agreed that the corruption in this instution was part of the same corruption that has infected Congress and the US Supreme Court. According to reports tonight, Justices Scalia and Thomas had dinner this week with the law firm that is going to argue before the Court that the new health care law should be voided. There is no way to get rid of the people that gave us the Citizens United decision (funded by the Koch Brothers with “old money” that Daddy Koch made during the 1930′s developing oil fields for the Communist government of Joseph Stalin in the former.Union of Soviet Socialist Repulblics -check out history of Koch family wealth)
