Trinity Wall Street church, which owns the Occupy Wall Street–coveted lot at Duarte Square, may have the current Episcopal leadership on their side, but the protesters have a retired bishop on theirs — he was arrested in full cassock, along with 50-or-so other occupiers, yesterday. "I am heartened to know he looked pretty happy in the paddy wagon," said his wife. [Telegraph UK]
