Phillip Glass Meets OWS

The other night OWS attended (outside on the sidewalk) the opera Satyagraha at Lincoln Center and afterword, composer Phillip Glass joined the protesters to read/repeat (as is his wont) this brief passage from the Bhaghavad Gita:
"When righteousness withers away and evil rules the land, we come into being, age after age, and take visible shape, and move, a man among men, for the protection of good, thrusting back evil and setting virtue on her seat again."
I have to say that Glass orchestrated this in a superbly democratic manner.
