Occupy Where?

My old hometown, Lubbock, TX, is a city in west Texas of about 200,000 people. My current hometown, Charlotte, is a metropolitan area of over 1 million. Both have active occupy movements. Guess which one is getting more coverage from its local newspaper?

Occupy Lubbock.

From the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal. And also this.

For whatever reason the Charlotte Observer has chosen to ignore Occupy Charlotte. Of course it wouldn't have anything to do with a certain bank's corporate headquarters just down the street from the Observer's office. Nah!
