I'd be really interested to know just how welcome Occupy and some of the organizations mentioned were at the Veterans Day parade in San Diego. (Something tells me that most of the participants have little in common with Occupy, and didn't care to share the parade with them.) How about an update, Chad?

Nov. 11, 2011

Visduh, I'll give an update. We were there and if Occupy had stood along the route and cheered/clapped in honor and remembrance of American Veteran's, that would've been fine. But no, some of them chose to be loud, be profane, say inappropriate things, and play music from a boombox at a very loud volume. When several in the crowd asked them to turn it down, they were ignored. Not until I crossed the street and asked them to turn it down, did they do so. This wasn't about them and they had no place there if their plans were disruption, as it seemed to be. The Veteran's present and past fought for their right to peacefully protest, they should've shown their respect and thanks by doing so or getting lost.

Nov. 11, 2011

Thanks for the update. Can't say I'm surprised. I've been in that parade for several years but didn't make it this year. (I participated in one in No County instead.) I wondered if Occupy actually entered some units in the parade. Too bad our reporter still hasn't responded to my modest request for more info. Hey, Chad, your response?

Nov. 11, 2011

Had a household emergency and was unable to make the parade. Thanks for the update jurjis.
