Went to the Illinois Press Association awards luncheon today at the Hilton in downtown Springfield. The main speaker was the Honerable Senator Barack Obama. The paper picked up several awards. During the morning hours, I took part in a little seminar/workshop thing.

While speaking to a roomful of newspaper executives, Obama praised news coverage of Hurricane Katrina, calling it “one of the media’s better moments.” — AP story

Look. I’ve been declared a newspaper executive now. That or they meant a roomful of newspaper executives and Guido.


Here’s my rendering of how I saw it go down. There were obviously other people around, too. I’m just too lazy to draw them all in. But I had a nice clear view right up the aisle, anyway.
