The Other Sorkin

You may remember that almost a year ago, NYT columnist and author Andrew Ross Sorkin mocked Occupy Wall St. and its adherents in its early days.   After the movement proved to endure and have a very positive effect--shifting the national conversation on income inequality--Sorkin issued a kind of semi-apology and said his mind was open. 

Now, many months on, he has penned a piece for the Tuesday NYT deriding the movement as one big "fizzle."  It started out hot but "now, 12 months later, it can and should be said that Occupy Wall Street was — perhaps this is going to sound indelicate — a fad."
