Lemony Snicket observes Wall Street…discreetly

by Intern Candice

Daniel Handler, better known by the pen name Lemony Snicket and beloved author of the delightfully depressing “A Series of Unfortunate Events”, is just one of the many (no seriously, there are SO many) authors that’s showing their support for Occupy Wall Street on the Occupy Writers site.

While the goal of the whole protest is broad and at times hazy, Snicket doesn’t hesitate to draw his own conclusions on what’s going in his signature witty charm. Whether you’re not too serious or perhaps following news about the Occupiers and the 1%  religiously, you might get a little chuckle out of his 13 Observations while watching Occupy Wall Street from a Discreet Distance. But, amidst the subtle humor is some serious thought provoking and just all around good points being made.
