Several dozen activists have camped out in a park in Washington, D.C. to show their support for the Occupy Wall Street movement. The Ticket dropped by Thursday afternoon to see how things were going.
The camp has a soup kitchen with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches available around the clock; a garbage station with cans for compost, waste, and recycling; a meeting space; and even a makeshift community library that contained, well, some unexpected surprises.
Here's an example of what they had available: Barron's How to Prepare for the Stockbroker Examination.
Bias, by conservative media critic Bernie Goldberg made an appearance.
The shelves also books that you might expect at a liberal protest: Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States, Eco-Economy by Lester R. Brown and The New Left Reader by Carl Oglesby.
