I spent a day in Freedom Plaza, a triangle of concrete adjacent to several high-end hotels with shiny black Mercedes limos out front three blocks from the White House. It's Washington DC's entry in the Occupy America phenomenon. I came wearing two hats. One, I'm a Vietnam veteran member of Veterans For Peace who has actively worked for over a decade against our bankrupting wars. And, two, I'm an experienced journalist with a master's degree who works in both images and words. I won't take a back seat to anyone in what is known as the Main Stream Media.
