This was a fun, though scorching day in the sun.  Clinton is speaking at the podium.  The fun part was talking to everyone around me.  I was kidding the Seaman's Apprentice about standing still and I don't think he knew to what degree I was kidding.  I ended up sending copies of it to several people who were there, including him.

One odd thing, the dark "dot" in the upper left of the building was a Secret Service agent with the biggest pair of binoculars I've ever seen.
