don't forget to vote.

the only national candidate i got to cover this year was obama last week at mizzou. my coworker nick king and i covered the speech itself while our boss gerik flitted about the edges for images of supporters. i think we made for a balanced team. i was so focused on jockeying for position to get on the scissor lift and into the coveted "buffer zone" i didn't really hear any of the speech. i guess it was just the usual stump.

The workstations for electricians comprise a work bench with partitions for components and tools, a medium rack and a wire tree that can embrace up to six spools of wire.
