Today I was cleaning pictures from the last couple of months off my Blackberry, and ran across this one, which appealed to me — the colors, the looming image of Sen. Graham, the worship attitudes of Steve Benjamin and the other much-smaller dignitaries on the dais at right, some other undefinable qualities that perhaps an art major could better describe. There are certain tensions, or something.
It seemed like a good one for my much-neglected “Write Your Own Caption” category.
Anyway, I shot this at EngenuitySC’s IGNITE! program in the Innovista on the evening of Nov. 17 — which was a great event, by the way. The emphasis was on entrepreneurship, and the keep the energy going, there were 9 speakers, each of whom was kept to six minutes and 40 seconds, so it never got dull. And there was free beer, and there were these tasty sausage things.
To learn more about it, you can check out this Powerpoint presentation that Neil McLean gave at the conference:

Republican leaders listen in rapt awe as Sen. Lindsey Graham explains why gays should be drummed out of the military: “Excuse me, sir, but I think that private over there — no, not that one, the guy next to him — is possibly gay. Looks gay to me, anyway. So I’m not going to give him cover fire while we take that hill.”
