Last night Keith Olbermann spoke to Dorli Rainey, the 84-year-old woman who was pepper-sprayed at an Occupy Seattle protest. A longtime activist, she has a blog, Old Lady in Combat Boots, with the slogan, "Change begins in the streets." We want to be her. Her response to how she's doing:

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
