Democracy is Not in the Streets

I've stolen this image from Michael Shaw here at BagNewsNotes who, as always, has a very keen eye for the ironies swirling around what passes for American democracy. As the police beat and arrest protesters who step off the sidewalk this financier strides confidently down the middle of the street. I suspect his obliviousness is studied. Look closely and you'll notice the ear buds - an iPod usefully filtering out the any indication of the consequences his activities generate.
