A few Lawrence residents made the journey to Kansas City on Saturday afternoon to join in a rally supporting Sen. Barack Obama's bid for the White House.

I was there with my daughter and three grandchildren. I thought it was a very diverse crowd, a few older men with long hair, but other than that pretty ordinary looking crowd of young and old, blacks, caucasians, Asians and Hispanics. It was an exciting time, people in the crowd were very positive, the speeches were positive. The minister who said the prayer prayed for the safety of Barack Obama and John McCain and their running mates. I think that really set the tone for a rally that was about positive changes and not focused on how bad the opponent is. It was a wonderful experience in a very hallowed place where WWI veterans are honored. No matter the outcome of election, I'm glad my family got to experience this exercise in democracy. Let the cynical comments begin. :~ )
Uh, BigPrude, did you notice it's not 1962 anymore?
Did anyone notice, the guys have longer hair than the girls?
I was there too. I've been impressed at how positive the Obama campaign has been. There really is a lot of dirt that could be flung at McCain, but Barack has taken the high road. He'll make a great President.
