    ROFL! Having spent a portion of my life (HS and some years post-college) in Charlotte…

    I suspect Occupy is going to have a few MORE instances like that.

    And I wish them (black/white/hispanic/whatever) good luck in teaching the ‘Occupiers’ some manners.

    I suspect the ‘Occupy’ turnout is going to be about as successful in Charlotte as it was in Tampa.
