Complete Video Of President Barack Obama Receiving The Kennedy ‘Profile In Courage Award’, May 7, 2017 — With James Taylor.

by Anura Guruge



This is the FULL COVERAGE video, including the opening musical segment by James Taylor (starting at around the 38 minute mark).

Obama’s 30 minute speech starts at ~ 1:13:58 mark; i.e., one hour thirteen minutes into it.

Good ceremony. Haven’t watched all of it. But, saw bits.

Enjoy.

Well, well, well.

I had no idea how old Sony was — or where the name came from. Now, thanks to Wikipedia, I know. “Sonny Boy” — and I can see how they came up with “Walkman” from there.

Over the years I have had lots of Sony products — going back to Betamax. Yes, I was a big adherent of Betamax.

And now Sony cameras. Had three already and the plan is to get two more within the month! And the scary thing is that I am not that sure I like Sony cameras!

But, I have little choice. I am COMMITTED to mirrorless and don’t want to go below APS-C. Yes, Fuji was an option BUT I despaired of Fuji’s lousy autofocus capabilities.

So, it has to be Sony and I have to learn to live with Sony!
