Some Occupy Wall Street protesters headed to D.C. on foot

A small group of Occupy Wall Street protesters are headed from Manhattan to Washington, D.C. on foot.

The protesters will start a two-week, 240-mile march to D.C. They're planning to arrive on the day a congressional committee will decide whether to extend the Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthy.

Meanwhile, demonstrators got a touch of Woodstock yesterday from activist musicians David Crosby and Graham Nash. The white-haired duo led a chant of "No More War!" and played a 20-minute acoustic set.
