a good friend of mine, jfb, runs a couple of newspapers in Iowa and recently attended a town hall meeting with barack obama .. the photo.paint venture was a part of the adventure .. here is what jfb had to say .. "Yeah, I was pretty impressed with the whole event. It was run like a true town hall forum with anyone in the crowd able to come up and ask a question. ...at one point, I even screamed out 'Joe Dimino dot com!' .. I thought they were going to throw me out."
