The great man fell out of the sky and crashed into the earth. More or less to his benefit, he happened to be inside of an airplane at the time. The antique, single-engine World War I fighter plane descended in an erratic, jagged arc that would be generous to call a glide path, as the pilot struggled to maintain control of the aircraft. A trail of smoke billowed from it, marking out its trajectory like a graph illustrating a stock market crash, falling unavoidably to ruin.
