    Did you notice how clever they were with the advertisers? You could tell there's absolutely no angle you could photograph someone standing at the podium from that wouldn't include the advertisements on the banners hanging behind there.

    And you even got photos of the Secret Service dudes. They just always look so silly with suits and sunglasses and earpieces.

    Damnit, the girls at my school arn't as pretty as the girls at your school.
    and what is City Year?
  14. Nov 26, 2004 #13
    City year is a misnomer for a Federal Funding on scholarships for young adults who commit themselves one year to K-12 teaching and in return they receive some relief on their college tuition. So, on this occasion, President Clinton swores in the new City Year members.

    William J Clinton visited us two time publicly but he was not the only one...

    Oprah Winfrey visited... but was in late evening, when all student body are out of school.

    Jessie Jackson visited,... though was not a ceremonial visit. I certainly did not get to see him in person.

    Due to security purposes, only Seniors, Band members, and Foreign exchange students were permitted to come out to the front lawn and watch the ceremony. Many people like me were eager to see President Clinton. Luckily, I got in the action, I told them I was Foreign Exchange :p

    So as for the rest, they wander out the window as far as they can to hear and see what this Clinton Legacy is all about.

    So, for security, you can't go outside where they can watch you, but you can stand in the window right behind the podium, and that's secure? :bugeye:
