I got my hands on some photos from inside the facility where the city is keeping OWS stuff (press isn’t allowed inside). It looks pretty gross in there!

Falmouth is my hometown! look at this cute activist doggie! love it.
So, Occupy Wall Street got raided last night and it looks like Graham Rayman knew about it before anyone else — he had a copy of the NYPD mobilization order last night at 7:45 that called for 432 cops to head to the scene.
Rosie Gray was there and has a full recap. We’ve also got photos from the eviction and an explanation from Mayor Bloomberg that this was his decision and his decision only.
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES OWS
seriously though this has been wild.
someone get me this please
Friendly Cult Looking For Recruits at Occupy Wall Street! -
Rosie Gray was brave enough to “get in the van”, so to speak, and learned there’s a cult at OWS! She says “Upon entering the cozy wood-paneled bus, an older couple presented the Voice with a plate of brownies. We took one. (No, it wasn’t a pot brownie.) There were about a dozen people on the bus, which looked like someone’s rec room mixed with Frodo’s house. A man named Emmett with a headband and tattooed arms came and sat beside us on one of the soft cushy seats and handed us a cup of tea. (It wasn’t mushroom tea.)”

In some respects, NYU is the poster child for the excesses of 21st-century student debt in America. Although most NYU undergraduates haven’t borrowed as much as Lyndsey (who owes $165,000 and will end up paying $350,000 because of interest), the average student is still a whopping $35,000 in debt when they graduate, a figure $11,000 higher than the national average. In fact, NYU creates more student debt than any other nonprofit college or university in the country. The only schools putting students into more debt are the kind of for-profit diploma mills currently being investigated by the United States Senate.
But at the same time, NYU’s status as an iconic and prolific generator of student debt is an awkward fit with the populist outrage of national education funding activists and Occupy Wall Street protesters. Prospective NYU students have less-expensive options, and NYU isn’t exactly positioning itself as an affordable institution for the masses. In fact, its tuition is so high and its financial aid so low precisely because the university is on a multi-decade spending spree, attempting to launch itself into the highest tiers of elite universities with a state-of-the-art campus and top-notch faculty. — this week’s cover story deals with a subject very relevant to my interests: NYU.
