Hunting Eagles and Toast

We flatter ourselves that we act, by creating images of perfervid calisthenic motion in service of some end:

We make more of these images all the time.

In service of some end.

Meanwhile, we regard guys who go to the trouble of casting the Mona Lisa on manifold pieces of toast with condescension:

As General Motors/Countrywide/Name Your Bank/AIG fails. It took many years to make these creatures. Their scale was law, free and clear, unto itself.

They were free to rise. Were we free from their rise? Are we free from their fall?
