You guys are good! We never dreamed we'd see the Leader of the Free World cruising by Dib or S&L Pantry, but... there he was, captured by readers' cameras.
First, this awesome video was posted to our Facebook page, along with some other great on-the-scene shots:
Then, a few feet down the street, another reader got the following extreme close-ups of the Presidential limo.
Incidentally, the last vehicle to go by in the motorcade (approximately 1:10 on the video) had an open rear hatch, and there was a fully armed serviceman wearing a very alert and intimidating expression riding there. It was a sobering sight, but he got some cheers from the crowd anyway.
The President was in the second limo with flags, and was sitting on the passenger side, so people on the north side of the street got a better look.
A thrilling day for Uptown. Happy Birthday, Mr. President.
