Most popular damn posts o' the week: All Occupy Atlanta, all the time

The banks get bailed out, we got sold out. Whose streets? Our streets. Y'all gone make me lose my mind, up in here (up in here). Take a moment and revisit this week's most popular posts on Fresh Loaf, which once considered starting an Occupy Scitrek way before these folks even thought about camping in Woodruff Park.

1. Is your town's Occupy movement not getting any press? Atlanta's protest didn't seem to have any problems.

2. OK, so this blog post's title is somewhat misleading. Other exciting, non-protest stories were being covered on Fresh Loaf. For instance: Triumph Lofts, the former warehouse turned condo complex on Memorial Drive, has a new owner — the Atlanta Beltline.

3. Now back to the revolution! Occupy Atlanta understood that, ya know, maybe some folks were confused by the whole Congressman-John-Lewis-was-asked-to-wait-and-speak affair.

4. But right-wing bloggers were having too much fun giggling about the whole incident (hell, the entire movement).

5. And finally, we present a chin scratcher. Atlanta Police surrounded the park and appeared ready to arrest the protesters on Monday. So why didn't they?
