84-Year-Old Woman Becomes the Pepper-Sprayed Face of Occupy Seattle

The woman in the picture is not just any elderly woman, however, as she is well known to Seattle residents. Dorli Rainey is a former school teacher who has been active in local politics since the 1960s. In 2009, she ran for mayor, but eventually dropped out by saying, "I am old and should learn to be old, stay home, watch TV and sit still." We guess she didn't learn.


Will and I haven't make a stop at Occupy Philadelphia, mostly because we're swamped with work, parenting, him taking classes, and me being uber-pregnant. But I've been writing "Occupy Wallstreet" in big red letters on all the credit card applications I've been getting in the mail and sending them back to the banks. Not a big thing, but at least I feel like I'm doing something in support of the cause.
