Like little stars.
This video from CBS, which shows “black bloc” agitators in Oakland last week tussling with nonviolent Occupy protesters, seems like it should be getting more attention:
Remember, a small group of roughly 100 people produced the scenes of burning trash and broken windows that the media seized on to represent the big demonstration and strike in Oakland last week. That’s despite the fact that the majority of the demonstrators — including some of those seen in the video above — are committed to nonviolence.
This is the second video I’ve seen from Oakland in which members of the young, masked “black bloc” crowd attack Occupy protesters trying to prevent property destruction. See this video, particularly around the 1:20 mark:
The takeaway here is that any discussion of violence or property destruction in the context of Occupy protests must recognize the fact that those pursuing these tactics — at least in Oakland last week — also appeared willing to turn on their fellow demonstrators.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
