OK, well, just updating my prior message to say that at the solidarity
rally in front of SI Borough Hall, I received a flyer telling me that
there will actually be an Occupy Staten Island, with first meeting
happening tomorrow, Nov. 13, at 1 pm in the Staten Island Mall Food
Court. Planning to see you Staten Islanders in the mall tomorrow
(hoping that I can find the spot OK, because in all my accumulated six
or seven years of living on the North Shore of Staten Island, I never
before had any incentive to go down to the Staten Island Mall).
