It seems that OWS is not in the news quite as much this past week or so, but that's not because it isn't still very much there.
Here in Washington State, the state legislature is meeting in Olympia, the state capitol, to argue over some $2 billion dollars in budget cuts that will cut various services, mostly to those who need them the most. Unions and social service groups are there in force, along with some 3,000 rank-and-file citizen protesters occupying the capitol campus.
Governor Gregoire and the state legislators definitely know they are there! And they vote!
