When the Daily Caller asked Black what was next for the movement, however, he personalized his answer.

To his credit, if I wound up in charge of Occupy Wall Street, I also would call it quits and tell everyone to go home and do something more productive. Scrapbooking, perhaps. Learning to whistle. Advanced daydreaming. Pretty much anything would qualify.
