Dangerous Knitters

This is my friend Marsha, who has shown up *every* day for 60 days to knit for the 99% at Liberty Plaza. Today, the guards arbitrarily changed the rules about bringing in chairs. Marsha has a bad back. And so does Karen, our fellow knitter who is 69 years old, and who also lugs a lawn chair to sit in while she knits for occupiers. To make a long story short, we three were able to sit at the corner of Broadway and Cedar and knit for three hours until this fine specimen of the NYPD, Officer Saracino, told us we had to move. We asked us where we could go. He said, “Home.” No such luck, Officer Saracino.
