Pictures from Denver

Our “convention correspondent,” Carol M. Highsmith, burned the midnight oil to file her first dispatches from Denver (after 1 a.m. local time!) As promised, we bring you a sampling of the copyright-free images. And as previously mentioned, we will also post some highlights next week from the Twin Cities.

    Where can I get one of those hats with the Obama car on it. That’s fun.

    Nice hat! And I have the same question like Bob asked. How I wish I can find a hat like that online or within our area.
