the golden bull

This extraordinary photo was taken on 29th October in Wall Street. It features a goup of people praying for the stock market as they lay hands on the Wall Street golden bull (OK it's really bronze). Now I'm sure I read somewhere in the Old Testament that people praying around such objects was not a good idea (Exodus 32). You can find an explanation for this extraordinary activity here.
