A Plus Side to the Occupy Movement?
There may be a plus in the occupy movement. Ministries attempting to house the homeless and the battered have historically been hampered by a myriad of housing and safety regulations. If the occupiers succeed with camping on city or county property then maybe a precedence will be established and ministries can purchase squad tents and porta-potties and place them on city and county property for their patrons.
I remember when power tools and small appliances had flexible cords.
