Chicago’s new mayor

Chris has had a busy couple of weeks balancing photos of the new mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel, the president when he has been in town, and multiple cabinet members, with his busy portrait and wedding schedule.  But not to worry, he wouldn’t have it any other way.

Visit to Israel – again

I have just returned from Israel on assignment with Gov. Mike Huckabee again this year.  It was interesting being there during all the protest.  We never say any evidence of the protest while we where in country, we felt very safe.  Maybe safer than here in Chicago!

I will be posting photos from the trip over the course of the next week or so – some from Jerusalem, some with the governor, and some from around the country.  Enjoy.
