No story on the cool new street signs around St. Rose? I thought it would be on everyone's radar this morning.

As for the "Occupy" idiots, why don't they do it in Washington Park, ya know, where the rest of the homeless people "occupy" everyday.

If anyone is interested, images last Saturday's [Oct 15] #Occupy Wall St Rally at the State Capitol east lawn are on line @ http://www.flickr.com/photos/nysut/sets/72157627792432679/ One of my favorite original signs in the photo collection says "The Original Wall St Protestor" with a painting of Jesus Christ confronting the money junkies.
