Photo of the Day

image of the Chicago Board of Trade with a message reading 'We Are the 1%' in the windows

A photo snapped by an Occupy Chicago protester of the 8th floor of the Chicago Board of Trade, in the windows of which are hung signs reading: "WE ARE THE 1%."

I don't know what assholes at CBOT thought that bit of smug belligerence would be hilarious, but it's almost certainly not people who are actually part of the 1%, or anywhere close to it. Which makes that message as self-defeating as it is needlessly provocative.
