Full disclosure---I wasn't at the New School occupation today-- or involved
in the planning processes before it, for the simple reason that I'm not a
New School student, but given that I am a petit-bourgeois student, was at
the "Take Back NYU" action and am a self-described rabble rouser, I figured
I would take the opportunity to ramble semi-coherently for 15 minutes on the
subject[s],

After that self-effacing I'll be surprised if anyone would bother to read
this:

(Oh and full disclosure again, I didn't read "*Fixing Broken Windows:
Restoring Order and Reducing Crime in Our Communities*" either, but I did
skim the 2 page Atlantic Monthly article on it, so I might as well have read
it.)
