In favor in principle, as I will try to exipaln. Both the liaison' and GA/OLA, and me included of course, are responsible with the present problems surrounding this. GA is not effectively and clearly' dealing with this situation. The liaison' is not effectively and clearly' dealing with the situation. We, must resolve it .and ending it is clearly, imo, the logical step. End it clearly and decisively, then, if it is consensus, rebuild it correctly. Or I should say better. Movement development is reiterative', you change, fix, experiment, learn, modify as needed. Warning, Warning, Warning. As seriously as I can get your attention, this kind of break' with Principles and Solidarity, can, and usually does become a cancer' in the movement. I was SDS, Students for a Democratic Society, anti war group in the late 60 s, that also used participatory democracy. We were able to learn it slowly, but for the present Occupy, especially Los Angeles, you/we are hitting the ground runnning, repairing a jet while its flying. BUT we MUST adhere and take and OATH to your solidarity with your principles. Or risk the failure and fragmentation of our movement. Please read your first two principles.1. Engaging in direct and transparent participatory democracy.2. Exercising personal and collective responsibility. We have failed BOTH these pricnciples with this liaison dilemma. We are responsible to deal with it, using our principles. This liaison system, was not direct democracy', it was not transparent', no one recorded the meetings for the rest of the OLA/GA etc. WE as OLA are not exercising responsibility, neither are the persons individually. We must try, we must do. This is about SOLIDARITY to the Principles, to each other, to the Participatory Democracy that I BEG you to give a long chance. It is and will be, your greatest strength. It is the model you must show to all the 99. WE must learn to govern. We must BELEIVE we can learn to govern. SOLIDARITY is a VERB, we ACT in Solidarity and if we do not, we BREAK Solidarity. Again, any further meetings with Police and officials' not RECORDED and DISSEMINATED to OLA/GA, allowing viewing and discussion and DIRECTION is INTENTIONAL break of Solidarity to Principles, and to each other by whoever goes to such a meeting, by whoever does not clearly OBJECT to such breaks of Solidarity, Principles, Transparency, and Participatory Democracy. Thank you. Sorry for wordiness, Solidarity to ALL. PttP Mike

St. Louis is an independent city in the U.S. state of Missouri. It is bordered by the Mississippi River on the east and by St. Louis County on the north, south, and west. St. Louis is the largest metropolitan area in Missouri. Sometimes written as Saint Louis, the city is named for King Louis IX of France. St. Louis is known for its French and German heritage and Victorian past. Two events at the beginning of the 20th century, the 1904 World's Fair and 1904 Olympic Games (the first ever held in the United States) are of particular pride to St. Louisans. In the 21st century, St. Louis has transformed from a manufacturing and industrial economy into a globally known focus for research in medicine, biotechnology, and other science. St. Louis is also called "Gateway to the West" on behalf the many people who moved west through St. Louis.
St. Louis , Cheap stuff:
Anheuser-Busch Brewery, a Free tour (with free beer samples for those of legal age) of one of the world's largest breweries and bottling factories. The Clydesdales and their historic truck and stables are one of the biggest attractions on the tour, as are the brew house and packaging facility.
St. Louis , Different stuff:
The Gateway Arch, Riverfront, designed by Eero Saarinen, it's the world's tallest national monument, built to be a symbolic gateway to the west. The icon of the city, the Arch is located in the Jefferson Expansion National Memorial Park by the Riverfront. You can ride a unique elevator - essentially it's a cross between a cable railway and a ferris wheel - up to the top. There is also an innovative historical museum under the Arch. Don't miss the movie, "Monument to the Dream," about the building of the Arch--it is an exceptionally well-made and memorable tribute to how a vision was made tangible. The Arch was designed as a parabola scaled from 21 inches of string held 7 inches apart. Its foundation is anchored 60 feet underground.
St. Louis , Don't miss:

St. Louis , Hotels:
St. Louis does have the host of usual Marriott, Hilton, Holiday Inn, and the like, chains. One great thing about the city is an abundance of hotel rooms, convention and meeting space, and amenities for travelers. Since the city boast a low cost of living, even for the Midwest, you might find even the most expensive hotels relatively affordable; rooms at even the Ritz-Carlton start in the mid $200s per night.
St. Louis , Safety:
St. Louis' recent designation as the Most Dangerous City in America should not deter the potential visitor. Areas most often visited by tourists are no more dangerous than any other large American city. The more popular and most-visited areas in the city, such as Clayton, Downtown, the Central West End, and Forest Park have very low crime rates, even for the Midwest. Caution is warranted in other locales, particularly the North Side. . East St. Louis, in Illinois, is also noted for a higher crime rate than the Missouri side. Most tourists, however, will have little reason to visit these places, so it should not present reason for much concern. Some Metrolink stations are located in areas some may find questionable after dark as well, but most downtown areas around Busch Stadium, Union Station, St. Louis University area, and commuter lots near the airport are generally safe and patrolled.
