They’ve now decided to occupy an indoor atrium at 60 Wall Street, so I guess you could say they’re finally occupying Wall Street. We’ve detected the mantra of the day, the now ubiquitous cry that “We are coming back stronger than ever.”
Uh, yeah, whatever. They forgot to come back with umbrellas.

About 70 protesters are standing out in the rain at Zuccotti and an equal number have taken over the public atrium at 60 Wall Street.Several groups have clustered around the tables, discussing plans for moving ahead.

Charlie Gonzalez, 31, from Tottenville, Staten Island, is currently planning a “Mobile Occupation” beginning in New York City and stretching to Florida.Gonzez is looking for ten volunteers to make the trek in his green bus – a converted 1996 school bus that runs on vegetable oil.
“It’s all about sharing information. We will be stopping at eleven cities and want to be part of the evolution,” said Gonzalez.
The trip is still in its planning stages but will last a month, beginning shortly after Thanksgiving, according to Gonzalez.
