    The first time I saw this picture I can't even begin to describe the emotions that washed over me.  In my lifetime we have seen so much.  Computer, CD's, DVD's, commercial jet aviation, TV, color TV, cable, DVR, and the internet.

    But perhaps the most amazing is that in a single lifetime we have gone from Jim Crow, blacks having to give up their seat and move to the back of the bus, to having Barack Obama as our President.  To see him sitting pensively in the the very bus that Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on nearly brought me to tears.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to get a copy of this photo from the White House?
