Occupy Wall Street. Whatever.

Apparently the excuse was that these folks were in the convention center, or had been during the day. Traffic was stalled through the intersection for an hour or two.
These folks were not selling an idea or philosophy. Just causing trouble, or at least aggravation. The WaPo had a paragraph or two in the ODT edition this morning, but the main article was longer. PowerLine had an entry here. I like the quote they had:
It’s stuff like this that makes you nostalgic for the
Good Old Days of real police brutality.
The editor saw one of the drivers (young guy) going east on M Street lean out of the window and yell at the guy in his way that he had a sick kid at home. The guy standing in front of his car didn't move. The driver started to move. The OWS type moved. The editor's wife saw a driver who shouted the he had a death in the family and had to get home. The OWSer said something like "well then, you don't have to hurry". The he moved fast. The WaPo had that three people were injured by cars. There could have been more.
Today's Pricky City probably had the best line
"Let's wait out the occupation here. They will have to leave and recharge their iPads in no time."
HotAir has an entry, with video, here.
