Peter Vallone: Wall Street Occupiers Need To Get A Job: Gothamist:

After nearly a week of muted coverage, it seems that the violent arrest of 80 protestors this weekend has finally forced major news organizations to spill ink for the ongoing occupation of Wall Street. NY1's coverage reveals that Queens councilman Peter Vallone, Jr. is no fan of what's going on in Lower Manhattan. "You certainly cannot take over a New York City street…We have emergency vehicles to get through, people actually have jobs to get to, unlike these protestors, apparently," Vallone said, without a trace of irony.
