It was predictable that “End the Fed” signs would find their way to the Occupy Wall Street protest and its satellites.

One day last week, at the Occupy Kansas City site near the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, a dreadlocked and heavily pierced individual, who identified himself as Rocky, brandished a piece of cardboard that accused the Fed of treason. Among Rocky’s complaints was (I think) the obscure moment in rock history when Alice Cooper’s Billion Dollar Babies album was delayed at the printer because of concerns about the way currency was used in the artwork. It was actually the Secret Service that temporarily stopped the presses, but I got his drift.
