Occupy handouts



This is the logical end to the week of the protests that weren't. No fight. Just food. The boxed lunches — sandwiches, fruit and ice cold bottled water — came after police heard protesters were getting low on provisions, the Tampa Bay Times' Marissa Lang and Kim Wilmath are reporting. The protesters had planned to occupy companies owned by Mitt Romney's Bain Capital empire all day but were tired and hot and ended up at Domino's Pizza instead. A young woman who identified herself only as Ducky wasn't happy. An older, bearded man sitting nearby took exception, mustering at least enough energy to stand up and yell at her. "You might not need rest, but some of us do," he said.
