    Occupy the Highway: The March from Zucotti Square to Washington D.C.

     

    As I reported last week, a number of Occupy Wall Street protestors left Zucotti Square in New York City on a 240-mile march to Washington D.C. The protest marchers plan to hoof 20 miles per day and arrive in front of Congress by November 23, the day the Super Committee is mandated to complete work on cutting the budget by $1.3 trillion.

     

    Those marchers are marching on.

     

    They are not giving up.

     

    From the road you can see images of what is happening as recorded by The Washington Post. The link takes you to scenes captured as of yesterday.

    From the Cornfield, I am finding the march interesting especially in light of the break up of Occupy encampments across the nation.

     

    Will the marchers continue to draw support and will they increase in numbers?

     

    What impact will the march have on politicians, who are at the root of the problem?

     

    Will the march force the Super Committee to find common ground and meet its deadline?
