Thousands of Chicago Public School teachers march to the Board of Education’s headquarters in protest.
One thing stuck out in my mind this weekend as I was ushered from one place to place by military and State Department personnel: It wasn’t that long ago that I could roam the hallways of McCormick Place freely with then Senator Barack Obama.
The North American Treaty Organazation meeting began today just a five minute walk from my own bed. It was a lot of fun seeing scores of world leaders all in one place and even odder to have them so close to home.
Yesterday was my 9th Kentucky Derby and possibly the steamiest one I remember. It was also my 13th major horse race setting up and operating multiple cameras to capture the finish. This year I used six cameras firing simultaneously to cover the race.
I’m neither the sharpest tool in the shed, nor am I some sort of savant… but I can tell you one thing you shouldn’t do. When 20 photographers are trying to shoot the favorite at the Kentucky Derby, don’t take a picture of yourself while standing in everyone’s background.
