CNN: At least Carol Lin’s got her priorities in order

JASON BELLINI: At street level, Sunday’s protest felt like a parade. Madison Square Garden served as the reviewing stand. Flores-Williams knows getting arrested is a way to get attention.
His protestor manifesto in the latest issue of “High Times” magazine included a section on how to deal with getting arrested. Remain silent is the main advice.
(on camera): In his article for “High Times” magazine, Jason writes that he believes the era of single-issue activism is over, “there are no longer any inner circles,” he writes, “no longer any activist stars.”
(voice-over): What you have is a cacophony of tens of thousands of protestors representing hundreds of different issues all coming together, Flores-Williams hopes, with the collective message — we’re not happy with our government.
The question not answered today — will street theater alone keep anyone interested?
Jason Bellini, CNN, New York.
CAROL LIN: I know it’s democracy, but it’s sometimes hard to take seriously.


JACQUI JERAS, CNN METEOROLOGIST: And last but not least, there you can see Frances, moving on through, heading to the Leeward Islands. Tropical storm watches have been posted now for the northern Leeward Islands. Could potentially have an impact on the United States, maybe by Saturday. So the end of the week. We’re going to be watching Frances very slowly. Right now, category four, with 135 mile an hour winds.
CAROL LIN: Wow. To be taken very seriously. Thanks very much, Jacqui.
