>> Several hundred riot police surrounded Zuccotti Park last night, arresting approximately 200 Occupy Wall Street protesters using pepper-spray and physical force. Though New York City judge Lucy Billings ruled that the protesters had to be let back into the park, the group has moved north to Foley Square. And with Twitter goes the movement. (NY Mag)

>> After being unable to think of the third agency he would reform at the GOP debate in South Carolina, Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry is back to harping on threes: "I'm going to unveil a plan to uproot all three branches of government and overhaul Washington." Sounds modest. (CBS)

>> The Supreme Court will rule in June on the constitutionality of the health-insurance mandate, part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act passed through Congress in March 2010. It'll likely come down to judge Anthony Kennedy who leans conservative, but 75-year-olds needs health insurance more than anyone. (the New York Times)

>> The San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank found that the chance of a U.S. recession was more likely than not by early 2012. Thanks a lot, Greece. (Reuters)

>> And finally: While polls show that three-quarters of Greeks support intermediary Prime Minister Lucas Papademos, thousands are expected to rally in Athens on Thursday to protest the new austerity measures. The rally also commemorates the student uprising in 1973. Sorry Greeks, but it's time to tighten those belts. (Reuters)
