Wall Street crisis = messed hair, covered faces and pulled noses

Below is a gallery of actual press photos depicting the people who work on the New York Stock Exchange floor and in other countries during the current global financial crisis.

In visualizing this crisis, press photographers have chosen to consistently shoot these traders doing all kinds of things to their noggins on a daily basis for the past two weeks: covering their faces, rubbing their foreheads, pulling down on their cheeks like the melting people at the end of that cheesy 70's horror flick "The Devil's Rain," picking at their hair, and my favorite, pulling at their noses.

Somehow these activities represent the world financial markets in trouble. Heck, even the news photographers at the Kuwait, Moscow and China stock markets must have read from the same playbook!
