This Looks Ominous

Tell me this doesn't look ominous. Darth Vader rings the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange flanked by the stormtrooper color guard. This was some sort of stunt for Lucasfilms -- like they need the publicity.  Toronto's Globe and Mail had a caption writing contest with a photo of Vader on the trading floor.

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."


-- Cecil Day-Lewis from Where Are The War Poets?
