Today’s Washington Post Style page offers up this beyond-satire account of Dylan Bozlee of Hilo, Hawaii, who, the Post explains:
dropped out of college at the University of Hawaii to join Occupy, and says he’d rather travel across America than get a job. “Do I want to work? Only if I wanted a home, wife, kids and a dog. If not, I think you’re ruining your life,” he said. Before the march, Bozlee was a member of the Class Warfare camp at Zuccotti Park in New York, where he says he joined other anarchists in teaching passersby about the concept of warfare of the lower classes against the upper class.
Really, you couldn’t make this up if you tried, though I’m open to a Power Line contest for the best “ending” of this story: does Bozlee end up a homeless schizophrenic? An Obama administration appointee? A surf shop stock clerk back in Hilo?
Funny, too, that the Post seems uninterested in finding out what Bozlee was majoring in back at the University of Hawaii, or how he made his way to the east coast. (Suggestions on his likely major welcome, too.) After all, despite the fact that there is an interstate highway in Hawaii (which has always puzzled me), I doubt he hitchhiked. I am sure traveling across America is more fun than getting a job if you have rich parents. Either way, I am sure his parents are proud. Er, except that they named him “Dylan.”
Meanwhile, Occupy DC is reaching its Altamont stage, with a sexual assault reported yesterday.
