The Occupy (Wall Street) movement has the attention of a bewildered media. Who does one interview when there are no leaders? How does one cover a story that appears to have no meaning, beginning, or end?  No purpose?  What is a reporter to do when the police DON'T step in?

The Occupy  movement hit Edmonton, Alberta, Canada this weekend.  The police refrained from ousting the illegally camped Occupiers, expecting perhaps that the cold weather would do their work for them.

The local media scrounged the grounds for their 15-second clips.  I loved this quote the reporter got from one young man identified as Ryan A. "Panda" 
"I'm able to resonate with people without feeling I have to change my frequency."
Carry on, people.  Keep resonating.

Just think how easy it would be for someone to do away with another at a big unorganized rally like these Occupy Wall Street, etc.? Especially with people camping out, no one in charge. H'mmmm.
