“To me it’s a non-story.”

That was the reaction of Mayor Tom Martin on Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, when asked about the Occupy Lubbock movement.  That’s a much smaller version of the Occupy Wall Street event.

Martin said he has had no contact with those who are participating in the Lubbock version.  The mayor, a former member of the media, seemed to poke fun at the local news coverage of the Occupy Lubbock event.

“In this age of media, I guess anybody that’s mad about anything is a story,” Martin said.
