Clown-O-Meter: Jesus returns to Cromwell
- Occupy Darien brought fewer than 10 protesters to the Gold Coast town, despite offers by organizer Margaret Rague, a lawyer/naturopathic physician, to pay Occupy Wall Street activists up to $3,000 each to come to her hometown with their message about how the upper class has absurd sums of money to frivolously throw around. (Two weeks earlier, Rague was in the news for an alleged incident of drunken hitchhiking and resisting arrest.) Darien police still paid out more than $10,000 in overtime to secure the event, even though officers outnumbered protesters, according to the Stamford Advocate.
