re: Occupy Toronto:

“... falling asleep in a tent in the middle of a park is camping... not protesting.” -- Rachel Young, here.

Meanwhile, overheard at Occupy Toronto: "We're not leaving 'til we put the park back in the condition we found it in!".

OK, I made that one up.

And that's the way the Ball bounces.

Another good insight!

What if they were Gregorian chants?

Better. Soothing. Sleep-inducing, even!
