Hosted by

Occupy Wall Street is only two weeks old and 200 strong, but it's trying to use Facebook and Twitter to organize nationwide. Is it part of worldwide discontent with the global economy? Why hasn't America's Left produced a counterpart to the Tea Partiers on the Right? Also, an American-born al Qaeda leader is killed in Yemen, and Bank of America is striking back against finance reform by charging customers for using their debit cards.
