More Wishful Thinking From AP Photogs

From those art lovers and economic mavens at the Associated Press:

A man passes by an ice sculpture entitled ‘Main Street Meltdown,’ in New York, Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2008. The sculpture, which is the work of artists Nora Ligano and Marshall Reese, made it’s debut on the 79th anniversary of Black Tuesday, the stock market crash that caused the Great Depression.

A passerby peers through an ice sculpture called ‘Main Street Meltdown,’ in New York, Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2008, on the 79th anniversary of ‘Black Tuesday,’ the stock market crash that caused the 1929 Great Depression. The sculpture is the collaboration of artist Nora Ligano and Marshall Reese. The artists say it will take 10-24 hours to completely melt down.

Nelson Lee stops to photograph an ice sculpture entitled ‘Main Street Meltdown,’ in Lower Manhattan in New York, Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2008, on the 79th anniversary of Black Tuesday, the stock market crash that caused the Great Depression. Artists Nora Ligano and Marshall Reese designed the sculpture, the fourth in a series addressing important political issues, to vanish by melting down within 10 to 24 hours.

Isn’t it wonderful to see our artists taking such an interest in this country’s economic history?

And to see our media taking such an interest in such an important work of art? (Twelve inch high letters made out of ice!!)

It’s clear that all the arms of our one party establishment are out beating the drum for a recession — or better yet, a depression — so that we can inaugurate another 30s-style socialist regime.

After all, it worked out so well the last time. (Maybe Ms. Liganno and Mr. Reese are hoping for a WPA grant.)

By the way, in the worker/artist paradise of the Soviet Union such “wreckers” would be shot and their families charged for the expense of the bullets.

    I know you’re not suggesting that the economy *isn’t* the worst it’s been since the Great Depression, so I won’t ask a dumb question like that.

    Instead I’ll just suggest that this, like the errant photos of McCain staffers sitting around waiting for something to do, is indicative of how many outlets there are for “news,” and how little news there is in comparison to fill it all.

    If there’s anything to justify the obscene amount of photos for this non-story, I’d say it has something to do with the Black Tuesday anniversary. But I could be wrong.

    Nobody will ever be able to convince me that this economic turmoil isnt the culmination of years of careful democrat planning in their bid for absolute power.

    I saw a snippet of the messiah on television last night, the cheering adoring masses, holding his hands up like a smarmy dictator should, and I couldnt help but remember the lines of whoever it was that said it first….to wit:

    “This is how Liberty is lost. It starts with thunderous applause”
