Where the Meridian played hooky yesterday

Barack Obama, El Dorado, Kansas, January 29, 2008. Click on the image to enlarge it (Image found here).

A longer post is to come tonight, but for now: see that front row of folks seated behind Obama? The second person from the left is, um, Yours Truly.

How that improbability came to pass will be in the longer post. In the meantime, if anyone is interested, the link above also takes you the the text of Governor Sebelius's endorsement and Obama's speech.

UPDATE: Welcome to those of you visiting from Russell's place. If you're interested, here's the promised post.

So. What we really want to know is: was he everything you thought he might be? (As if one can decide this in one evening, but -- your impressions?).

Of course I came here first thing upon booting my computer knowing that you will either have, or will be coming up with, a thoughtful post on Obama.

I'm waiting for your post, as well. The EMBLOS and I had a thoughtful conversation yesterday, and Obama would be her choice in a heartbeat.

Off topic: I thought you'd be amused/appalled by the fact that I got a hit today from England to a post in which I directed readers to your series on laundry facilities. The search string is here.

Once again, one googles at one's peril.
