Millonaire March
The Occupy Wall Street protesters will march to the private homes of several CEO's today. It's not clear if the demonstrators plan of threatening them or asking if they can come inside to take a shower.

OWS Cost
The NYPD says the Occupy Wall Street protests have already cost the city $2 million... and that's just the money they've had to spend on air freshener.

Silver Ship
A shipwreck off the coast of Florida has been found with $19 million of silver aboard. The only other sunken ship with that much silver is the U.S. Treasury.

Job Cuts Ahead
New York State Comptroller Thomas Di Napoli says Wall Street firms will lose another 10,000 jobs by the end of 2012. Hopefully, those will just be the people who donated to President Obama.

Food Police
A federal proposal that would restrict the food marketing to children is moving forward. Instead of icons like "Tony the Tiger," sugary snacks can now only be pitched by a fat registered sex offender.
