Occupy Austin Update

As of yesterday 10/20 there appear to be more people on the site. Driving home after midnight I’ve seen police around but no reactions between them. I don’t know whether there is a time limit on this or whether it’s intended to go on indefinitely. The things they are protesting definitely have no end.

Enemy of My Enemy

Once upon a time, there was a sparrow who decided not to fly south for the winter. However, soon the weather turned so cold that he reluctantly started to fly south. In a short time ice began to form on his wings and he fell to earth in a barnyard. Almost frozen, a cow passed by and crapped on the little sparrow. The sparrow thought it was the end. But, the manure warmed him and defrosted his wings. Warm and happy, able to breathe, he started to sing. Just then, a large cat came by and hearing the chirping, investigated the sounds. The cat cleared away the manure, found the chirping bird and ate him.

Morals to the Story:

1. Everyone who shits on you is not necessarily your enemy.
2. Everyone who gets you out of the shit is not necessarily your friend.
3. If you’re warm and happy in a pile of shit, keep your mouth shut!!!
