photo from net taken 64 years ago by brave photographer wearing goggles, mask, rubber boots/gloves and a charcoal lined suite.
During further independent research I discovered that yesterday was also the 100th birthday of the NAACP. Mr. Obama obviously chose the Centennial Celebration of such a fine entity that was born to support the advancement of African Americans long before they had the Right to Vote over the party that was being held at the WMD Camp in Cheyenne Wyoming. Happy Birthday NAACP-Keep the party going!!
Photo swiped from unnamed NYTimes photographer. Mr Obama is telling a fishing story about the one that got away and is showing the crowd how big it 'really' was.
