Occupy Newburyport

Occupy NewburyportI took a good long look at Newburyport’s version of Occupy Wall Street and I am deeply thankful.

Instead of an unruly bunch, we have polite protestors.

Instead of a growing health problem, we have warmly dressed individuals who go home to a warm bed every night.

Instead of a rising stink, our occupiers take showers! (At least, I hope so.)

Instead of attacks on our local police and defiance of authority punctuated with violence, the worst ‘pleasant’ problem is a view obstruction on our pretty city streets.

In fact, we should be deeply thankful that the pain suffered in other communities has not spread to our City.    As Councilor Tom Jones has often mentioned,

“We have ‘pleasant’ problems to deal with in Newburyport.”
