October 2, 2011, Hollywood, California. This photo shows it all...Marilyn Monroe (wax,) being admired by tourists, Occupy protesters taking a rest, newsmen covering the movement, and a Disney character listening to one of the 99%. I followed this group from City Hall to Hollywood and back. Some of the people I met had been there for over a month, and some were there visiting for the day. The homeless people found a new camp with which to live, with free food, water, and medical help. Some were there to take advantage of the situation, like socialist solicitors, pan-handlers, and those who just wanted to stir up hatred for the U.S. Government. But in general, I found it a peaceful place where most said they were there to change things for the good.
