Every once in a while current events jog me to post an image shot a few years back, just so I can write about it. I call this shot “don’t jump!”, because that’s what it looked like the central statuary figure was about to do…(actually, it’s called “Integrity Protecting The Works Of Man” or some such bluster, but today “don’t jump!” seems more apropos). Today, Oct 1, 2008, it appears our Ship of State, the USS Titanic Hubris, is bearing down on the huge karmic iceberg we all feel looming high above us, like a mile-thick glacial ice sheet. Hey!

We’ll just borrow trillions from those industrious Chinese so we can pay those nice Arabs for our party favors! No problem! My Friends, we have sown the wind and we’re about to reap the whirlwind.

Now, what happened to that big pile of money…?
