Remember last summer? No, not that lovely boat ride on Jamaica Pond that resplendent afternoon; we mean Occupy, that lovely populist uprising which now lurks semi-dormant like an angry, pitchfork-wielding mob too busy gesturing with antiquated farming tools to finish their similes. Yeah, that’s it! Leftist MSNBC commentator Christopher Hayes will be at Harvard Bookstore tonight, reading from Twilight of the Elites: America After Meritocracy, which covers—hey!—all that shit people were/ still are pissed about. Needless to say, boats don’t float with pitchforks stuck in ‘em. Best bring the parasol, guv’nor.
