Back to some national news -The Occupy Wall Street protests continue to inspire similar demonstrations in cities across the nation. The Daily Reader put up this post, last week: “Books to Read While You’re Occupying…”

…which includes a book that I, myself, am currently reading: Dorian Lynskey’s 33 Revolutions per Minute: A History of Protest Songs, from Billie Holiday to Greenday.
