Subject: [Leica] IMG: An historical and personal perspective

This is exactly what I'm experiencing, Steve and George.  The only time 
I've seen people so moved by a newly-elected president was JFK.  And in 
photos I've seen of crowds listening to FDR.  I'd add the Robert Kennedy 
campaign, too.

Some of that feeling is bound to be disappointed over time.  Realpolitik 
can be awfully, well, *real*, and we are in a heap of trouble right 
now.  But still, there is a sense of a truly historical moment, and in the 
sense of possibility, there truly is possibility.
