One Image is Worth a Thousand Words (II)

Less than 10 years ago, US firefighters and cops provided the most valuable photo opportunities:

President George W. Bush with firefighters and cops:

NYC, 14-09-01, [1]

Yet more firefighters during the unveiling of the USPS stamp "Heroes", reminiscent of the Raising the Flag in Iwo Jima USPS stamp.

White House, 11-03-02. [2]

Today, firefighters and cops (among other federal, state and municipal workers) are sacked, so as to pay for the disaster left behind by bankers, their politicians and their regulators. Just look at this woman's face.

Where are the politicians now?
