al gore came to town today and spoke on the plaza beneath my office window. unfortunately i wasn't able to hear much of what he said, since the secret service wouln't let us onto the lobby level. and you actually needed tickets to get onto the plaza. (here in conservative west michigan, where they were lucky anybody showed up at all!) those of us in the building had to settle for shooting a few pictures out the window. pretty much sucked.
