There seems to be no end to the greed at American International Group. Edward Liddy, chairman, tried to make the case that bonuses are needed to keep _skilled_ executives. Have they no shame at all?

The other image is one I took in Philadelphia by the 30th Street Station. This homeless man was sharing what little bread he had with the pigeons.

Why is it in America that we reward the first, and blame the second?

    If the executives were the brightest, best and most skilled... why are they in this mess? AIG execs behavior leaves me stunned.

    I just feel as if the only voice I have is through art. I don't think our govt listens a bit.

    On Target Photographic Capture for the Title, Our Goverment Is Big Business, Ran & Controlled By Major Corporations & there ain't no Senator or Representative that will stop this as they too are on the Take.

    Why would they want to keep a bunch of losers. Bonuses are not necessary because there are no other jobs out there for them, and to top it off, nobody would hire them because they created the mess in the first place.

    I think history shows that art is one of the most powerful ways of expressing social discontent. Painters in particular are renowned for their ability to satirize social evils. Daumier and da Vinci are 2 that come to mind. Keep it up!

    A powerful image. This level of greed is an indication that we are not only facing an economic crisis but a moral and spiritual crisis as well.
