Felix Salmon passes on a couple of amusing links riffing off of Obama's new banking proposals.
"Wall Streeters must feel like the Sky People in Avatar: They just got their asses kicked by a 10-foot-tall throwback to an earlier time."
(Paul "Tall Paul" Volcker) really only stands six feet seven inches. But he projects taller.)

However, the compare-and-contrast approach would be more compelling if Larry Summers ever looked anything but miserable.
