Two occupiers enjoying temporary triumph — Richard “Bigo” Barnett, 60, of Gravette, Arkansas sitting at Nancy Pelosi‘s desk during Wednesday’s Capitol hill riot, and poet David Shapiro smoking a cigar at the desk of Columbia University president Grayson Kirk during a student takeover on 4.30.68. Shapiro went on to teach at Columbia. What kind of a future will Barnett encounter, I wonder? Besides death, I mean.
