"Art is a lie that tells the truth" -- Pablo Picasso

It just keeps getting worse and piling up higher and deeper. Twenty years ago, we fired all the cops, and the crooks ran wild on Wall Street. And now we're expected to bail them all out with a trillion dollar purchase of all their bad debts and worthless assets, and leave them alone to get back to doing what they do best. In the words of Atrios yesterday, "Capitalism, fuck yeah!"
This whole situation scares the bejeezus out of me. It has the makings of a political, social, and economic perfect storm, a Hurricane Katrina for us all.
