Early lunch break



Starting around 11:30 a.m. here in the office people slowly started to walk away from their desks. By 11:45 work had completely stopped ad everyone on each floor crowded into the conference rooms and around TVs to watch the innaguration.

Kind of interesting to see 100 people all crammed into a room simply to watch a live feed off the computer.

Here is what I was able to get from my camera. As soon as the speech was over and event wound down, everyone just as quietly went back to work for the rest of the day.

Quiet? Really? Hmm, Well, they say you shouldn't discuss politics at work : )

You should have seen the Missourian newsroom. Because the Jschool doesn't give you off for big news events... Everything from plotting how to write about the event, to tears, to anger, to boredom.
