NOV 5, 2011 - David Crosby, a musical activist for over 50 years, briefly visited Occupy Wall Street at Zuccotti Park yesterday. Perhaps like the song of his longtime bandmate Stephen Stills he was thinking, "Stop, Hey, what's that sound? Everybody look what's going down!", and he wanted to see what was going down at Zuccotti Park with his own eyes. It looked like a show of support, and the word on the street says he hovered around the edge of the park near the drummers before venturing in and talking several of the peaceful Occupy activists. Check out some more pictures here, and watch him below playing with his bandmates Stills and Nash performing the Buffalo Springfield classic, "For What It's Worth".

OCT 28, 2011 - Bette Midler was on the Joy Behar show and said about the Occupy activists that "It's a good thing." When the subject of the Zuccotti Park residents and their complaints of sanitation in the area she said they should, "Chip in and buy some toilets, they're cheap. Porta-potties are cheap." Then she (joked?) that she would pay for the porta-potties.

They both talked about how they grew up in the 60s protests and Bette said, "We did it all the time. It was something you did because you were a citizen and you had something to say and you wanted to support your point of view."

As far as people on the right who are attacking the activists and calling them "dirty hippies" she says, "It's like they have taken a page out of 1969. So old school. Folks, 50 years have passed, get a new line." Watch the video below.
