Saturday Morning Links


Saturdays may belong to me, but today I belong to Occupy Des Moines. We’re marching to the Wells Fargo building this morning, located at 666 Walnut St. Not making that up. Feel free to post your own occupation stories in the comments today. I’ll be checking in to moderate those from time to time, but posting will be sporadic, if it happens at all.

More occupation links for this morning.
