Live! Nude! Davos!

I'm of two minds about the topless Occupy protesters at Davos where the world's political and business elite are holding their annual, invitation-only World Economic Forum. On the one hand, it is healthy to have rebellious voices at the posh pow-wow. After all, it's not like the Davosians, one-percenters all, have corned the market on wisdom. (See the current economic mess worldwide.) On the other hand, it's a bit sad that the protesters -- in this case, Ukrainian women of the group Femen -- have to bare their breasts for attention. But that says more about us (and the male-dominated media) than the half naked demonstrators, doesn't it?
