I just found a post on Comedy central suggesting their readers should come up with a caption for my photo of President Obama and Luxembourg PM Jean-Claude Juncker.
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.
More than 1,500 protesters from all over the region converged on the West Side Tuesday, to rally against everything from corporate excess to failing schools to immigrant deportations.
It’s hard to believe that it was seven years ago today that I photographed a protest for marriage equality in Chicago. It seemed like a place as liberal as Illinois would have civil unions in no time at all, but it took until June 2011 for us to have these rights.
