The other 1%

Were on Wall St. in Eureka Springs on Tuesday afternoon. "We're one percent of the town's entire population," an event organizer said of the 25 -- 30 people gathered in solidarity with the thousands occupying Wall Street in New York City. The movement congregates peacefully in support of restoring financial fairness and removing corporate corruption. Local events will be held every Tuesday at 4 p.m. and will be posted on the Occupy Eureka Facebook page. The grassroots group has no leader and anyone can create and post an event on the page. According to organizers, the group intends to meet "until we get the government back" -- "or," joked another, "until it gets cold."
