First some suggested guidelines>

Events that are within 24 hours of being in some news source


Ask a direct question to be answered, or direct responses with relative statements and request some missing information


This can be fun for anyone that follows news from virtually any source, from the hardcore newshounds to the merely passive observers of headlines.


First one out: Name of protest that spawned several other protests occurring in various cities across the country.

Provide an answer, anyone can verify it as correct or not

Anyone can post a question at any time; answers of prior questions notwithstanding



[with thanks to harum and wings]

Right! a.k.a. Occupy Wall Street, several variations have been launched, most with the "Occupy __ __" (this or that) moniker.

Please name a few Republican Politicians in the hunt for the 2012 election party nomination.

I've never voted, and never will. I live as best I can under whomever is elected, and I never complain of who is in office.

Thanks for the Rep. names!

So, feel like venturing a 'CE' topic for others to postulate upon?
