On Cue, Some #Occupy People Came By

I’ve been in Philadelphia since Wednesday, while Mrs. Other Smitty attends a conference. My main job, other than blogging, has been to watch The World’s Youngest Blogger.

We’re across the street from City Hall in Philly:

That statue of William Penn atop the building had its peace disturbed this afternoon by what may have been a portion of #OccupyPhilly at around ~1630 local. I asked the girl at the desk of the Residence Inn if that was in fact the #Occupy crowd, and she was of the opinion that this was not all of them. Apparently, the suction cup does not know what the tentacle is doing in this ‘leaderless’ outfit, so little sub-groups may be on independent ops. The little camera lacks a good microphone, so you have to crank it up to catch the drums.
They could not muster enough sound to wake up the World’s Youngest Blogger, who woke up later, in time for their second pass at ~1715. They didn’t really build up their attendance at all.

Update: CBS 3 reports that #OccupyPhilly was protesting Comcast, which apparently has not made enough inner children in #OccupyPhilly smile lately. They are not planning to depart when their permit is to expire.

    Bitty Smitty does not look impressed by Occupy Philly.

    Judging by the expresion on his face I imagine you had just explained the Donner Party’s economic beliefs.

    Mrs. Other Smitty? 

    Is there something you want to tell us? 

    There is a reason there is “The Other McCain.”  There is only one Smitty.  So your wife is Mrs. Smitty.  And the World’s Youngest Blogger®  is Bitty Smitty.

    Translation of Bitty Smitty’s look:  “Daddy, why does your bottle say ‘Dos Equis’ on it?”

    More along the lines of “If you’re gonna show me sights like that, I need a drink!”

    Smitty, never underestimate the value of early training…
