So, Mumbles has lost my vote

If last night was for getting drunk on the possibilities, today is for facing the sober reality.  As you probably know by now, the Boston Police moved in this morning at 5 AM with an overwhelming force and cleared Dewey Square of Occupy Boston, being careful to limit and block media access and public awareness of the action in every way possible.   You can make donations for legal counsel, etc., here.

So the dream is over, dear friends, but you know, as somebody once said, we just have to carry on. There's a General Assembly tonight at 7 pm on Boston Common.  Mayor Menino may not want us to take back our country, but it's still possible, remember that.  This dream may be over, but another can take its place.  The struggle is not over; it's never over.

  1. I hope that this becomes a campaign issue when he next runs for reelection-- amazingly bad move for a politician who based his career on liberal populism.

    I haven't been a Boston resident since 2006 otherwise he would have lost my vote as well.
