In response to questions re: the band and/or Jeff's thoughts on Occupy Wall Street, we rang Mr. Tweedy today and asked. His comment: "Occupy Wall Street is the best example of democracy in action we've seen around here in a long time. I'm inspired by their willingness to stand up and make themselves heard. I really hope it continues to grow and spread and inspires you, too. History shows pretty consistently that no positive change comes from people sitting on their asses."
