Millionaires to Get a Visit From Protesters

Some of New York's wealthiest businessmen should prepare for company Tuesday. Between 400 and 800 Occupy Wall Street protesters are planning a march to the homes of Rupert Murdoch, Jamie Dimon, David Koch, Howard Milstein, and John Paulson—five of NYC's richest. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday that he will allow the demonstrators to stay at their camp in downtown Manhattan indefinitely. “The bottom line is—people want to express themselves,” Bloomberg said. Some protesters expect to stay outside into the winter months. Meanwhile, a new poll shows that half the country has heard of the movement, and, of those, more view it positively than negatively. Demonstrations popped up in as many as 900 cities on Monday, the beginning of its fourth week. New York City was surprised by the appearance of Kanye West, Russell Simmons, and the Rev. Al Sharpton.
