"Am I alone in here? Am I alone in here? Am I alone in here?" - Chevelle, One Lonely Visitor
We might not have made it out of New Mexico. Thus far, it has been the only state that we have driven straight through without stopping for any prolonged duration. At some point one of us said something about being close to Roswell - home of aliens and modern day folklore. We were only vaguely close.
"The Occupation must live!" Someone had yelled it the night Occupy Los Angeles got raided. There was no way that the authorities were going to let the Occupation live forever. True, many had become complacent, and bored, and lazy - including me - the level of national awareness of corporate tyranny had been raised by several points, thanks in large part to these protests. If this trend is to continue, and the goal of "shaking things up" is to be taken seriously, we must carry forth.
