Great shadows

"It takes a tall man to cast a great shadow!" Well, isn't that the conventional wisdom? Of course. Unless we're talking about the setting of the sun:

I saw a wonderful quote in response to this utter farce earlier today:

"When small men cast long shadows, you know the sun is setting." Lao Tzu

By the way, have y'all ever noticed that all athletes, playing at night under artificial lighting, always cast long shadows?

Artificial lighting -- hmmm.
