10 p.m.

Return from Seattle -- home at 8 something. At 10 p.m. almost exactly, the sound of lots of helicopters in the distance, across Elysian Park, across Sunset, but not that far -- downtown. A welcome-home procession? Not likely. It appears Occupy L.A. is being taken down. So much for that moment of pride in the tolerance, strength, and originality of our city government and police force.

A short while later, I think I hear the sound of chanting. Turns out to be the sound of my neighbors' TV.

The counterrevolution will be televised.
