Occupy Portland, OSU Style

There's been lots of coverage in the news lately about about the various "occupy xxx" movements, including the ongoing one in downtown Portland. Friday, Benny and the Oregon State University Marching Band, the oldest band in the Pac-12, staged a lunchtime occupation on their way to Seattle, and was quite well received by the locals.

There was only one attempt to shout a "political" message over the cheerleaders' performance. That was a poor idea, and one quickly drowned out by 235 band members primed to "rock and roll".

And then it was on to Seattle.
