As Dana Rubinstein reported, "Gossip Girl" actor Occupy Wall Street-protest visitor Penn Badgley wore a "We are the 99%" shirt to the set of his show this afternoon, where Mayor Michael Bloomberg presented the cast with a proclamation from the city.

It's the second shirt-as-protest manuever used against Bloomberg at one of his events.

Last month, a college professor wore a "I am not a terorrist" shirt to the mayor's annual interfaith breakfast.

Overall, a quiet protest, comparatively speaking.
