Barney Oldfield -- August 29, 2008

"Motorist, Barney Oldfield, sitting in a parked next to a garage" in Chicago. I like the minimalist racing car. The front end appears to be an attempt at "wind-splitting."
The photo comes from the Library of Congress' wonderful American Memory site ( SDN-003390, Chicago Daily News negatives collection, Chicago Historical Society.
Senator Obama finished off the convention with a big speech in a football stadium. Senator McCain chose the governor of Alaska as his running. He announced it today to try to cut into Obama's press. I wonder how the issue about dismissing the Public Safety Commissioner is going to turn out.
