I saw flakes of snow falling from the sky this morning as I walked to the local convenience store.

Hennepin County has voted unanimously to prevent sleepovers at the county plaza, staring Monday.  I absolutely intend to be there Monday night with my sleeping bag, body bag, and protest poster.

I was thinking about sleeping out there tonight, but I might wait until tomorrow to do it instead.  The Veterans For Peace are holding an all-night vigil from 6pm Friday to 6am Saturday in honor of Veterans Day on Friday.

I went back and edited again my post about why I joined the local Occupation.

How did I forget to include voting reforms in the list?  Ranked choice ballots ("instant runoff") is necessary to make psychological manipulation of the electorate (fear mongering) a mathematical problem too intractable to solve.  Open source software and hardware is necessary to protect against election machinery fraud.  Public financing of campaigns is necessary to prevent moneyed interests from overwhelming the public debate.
