The Weekly Ten(+8)down October 16-22 2011

Sunday, October 23, 2011

Dear Internet:

The Niners are 5-1 and the talk of the National Football League.

SC went into South Bend outmanned for the first time in easily a decade and just whipped the Irish.

And the Giants have one more week as World Champions.

But it's my Ladygal's birthday (actually, it was yesterday, but that meant the day of work I need to do each Saturday got bumped to Sunday) so I won't be talking about any of that.  Instead, what you get are links, graphs, and photos about the 99% movement.

All I have, actually - I don't know how many, I want to clear the backlog as (1) I won't be writing for the next two weeks, next week is the two year anniversary of this column so what you get are links to each piece, then I go dark for a week and (2) this is Tendown 99, and putting the balance of my 99% related material up this week will make that connection easy to reference later.

So - if you have no interest in Occupation effluvia, I've got nothing for you this week.  I have been doing a daily sports post however, so if you're interested in that sort of thing, come back tomorrow.

Here's Tendown 99.

Your pal,
