Open Thread: AZ Memorial and President Obama’s Speech (Updated with pictures)
The picture above is of President and Mrs. Obama leaving for Tucson this morning. I’m about to run in and watch the memorial so I figure I’d give everyone a place to discuss it.
Jay sent us pictures of the line to get into the memorial, with this explanation:
These pictures are from close to the entrance to the facility. They filled both the gym and the football stadium from what I understand. I went down there at 11am and the line was a mile long. The people who came in later knew that they would be out in the cold. This is a big deal to desert people.
Thank you so much, Jay, for your supply of wonderful pictures!
