OccupyDenver tittle and bosh

First, Michael Moo!re is supposed to show up at the Denver encampment around 4:00 p.m. today, according to the Post. He's in town to appear at the Tattered Cover and UC-Denver. Who cares? (The Post and various news crews, that's who.) Saw the round mound of suet a few years ago; don't need to again.

Second, KOA says the Occupods are going to move camp soon from the sidewalk on Broadway to Skyline Park so they won't be in the way of the Veterans Day parade. Mighty thoughty of them. Skyline Park is a block-long concrete hole beloved of skateboarders and nodding addicts. The wind absolutely howls through it.

Update: Apparently the move isn't voluntary. KOA now says some veterans organization has dibs on Civic Center Park, and that the protesters have to move by tomorrow night. The D-blog was a leetle premature in pronouncing the end of the non-Boy Scout jamboree a while back, but again, how is it that this bunch gets to camp in city parks when no one else does?

Update II: Post: "Michael Moore fires up OccupyDenver, says rest of country watching"
