Failing at Occupying

The "Occupy" movement seems to be flagging in San Antonio. After all, when a very like-minded, liberal organization like starts looking at you askance, you've probably lost a bit of focus.
Occupy San Antonio's familiar rally cry, “Banks got bailed out; we got sold out!” sounded with particular relevance Saturday afternoon as protesters marched in solidarity with national Bank Transfer Day.


While they took a stand together against what they perceive as corporate greed, some members such as Celeste Douglas, 55, were “a little disenchanted” by the occupiers' masks and costumes.

“They say it's a zombie movement because most Americans are acting like zombies moving along, but the thing about it is, who wants to be part of a movement of zombies?” asked Douglas, who said she opened a credit union account earlier that day while closing the one she has with Bank of America.

Who, indeed, Ms. Douglas. Who, indeed.
