Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly's latest stories include an overview of the religious presence at the Occupy Wall Street protests at Zuccotti Park in New York.

I'm a big fan of The Conversation, the New York Times online feature in which Gail Collins and David Brooks have a casual chat. I think the appeal is supposed to be that the two are reasonable, amicable and witty columnists who clearly like each other a lot. That's all nice, but what I enjoy is the palpable pleasure the hilarious Collins takes in needling the less intentionally hilarious Brooks.
Whatever its explicit message, Occupy Wall Street has made a powerful statement with its very mode of existence.
