Ground Zero 2009
I find this image from Mario Tama particularly fitting given Obama’s crack down today on executives whose firms have been scoring bail-out dollars.
The photo was taken last week outside the NY Stock Exchange. The photo seems to capture what the Executive Branch is recognizing, which is the blasphemous contrast between what has been the bright and warm, thoroughly protected, gilded heart of American high finance as compared to the cold, empty and obstructed terrain outside.
