in the beginning was the word...

Jim Kunstler hits a line drive into the bleachers at his long-running Clusterfuck Nation blog this morning:

All last week across the media landscape, in pod, blog, flat-screen, and crunkly old newsprint columns, fatuous professional observers complained that the Occupy Wall Street marchers "have no clear agenda" or "can't articulate their positions." What impertinent horseshit. I saw a statement on one OWSer's sign that said it all:

$70,000 College Debt
$12,000 Medical Bills
I'm 22
Where's My Bailout?

Kunstler's is the only blog I know of whose name has become better and more apropos with time. It reminds me that the power of words, well employed, is a gorgeous and awesome thing.
