Reader: Occupy Denver's election of Shelby the dog as leader marked day I stopped caring

Kelsey Whipple's post in which Mayor Michael Hancock shared his view that the public no longer cares about Occupy Denver attracted numerous comments from supporters disputing his conclusion.

But there was also this take from someone very much on Hancock's wavelength.

Pete writes:

What fun, let's all recount when we stopped caring about Occupy Wall Street protesters in Denver. For me, it began when they voted the dog their leader. Then I saw a video of them having a grand old time provoking the cops and I officially quit caring about these jokers.

BTW, there has always been a 1% and always will be, just mathematics.
