Michael Bloomberg's edict against the campers in Zuccotti Park could really wind up helping OWS in the long run. Even the utopian vision of the park was not really the point of the protests, which were about the way most Americans are slipping out of the middle class as the top one percent is getting more and more obscenely wealthy. OWS can drive that home without living on the street. They can still protest in the park. They can still march. They can still make themselves heard. And we will be back talking about what they're saying, and not whether or not their campsite is clean.
