5. Coolest thing I ever experienced was in Poland...
just after adopting my son. The working people marched right past our hotel in Warsaw in solidarity! It was so cool!

April 26, 2002.

Wahoo!

12. "this is something I understand"
http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/occupy_wall_street/...

Solidarity hero Lech Walesa is flying to New York to show his support for the Occupy Wall Street protesters.

"How could I not respond," Walesa told a Polish newspaper Wednesday. "The thousands of people gathered near Wall Street are worried about the fate of their future, the fate of their country. This is something I understand."

A former shipyard worker who led Poland's successful revolt against Soviet communism, Walesa said "capitalism is in crisis" and not just in America.

"This is a worldwide problem," he told the Lublin-based Dziennik Wschodni newspaper. "The Wall Street protesters have focused a magnifying glass on the problem."
