Gluba and Roberts

Journalist Cokie Roberts and Mayor of Davenport Bill Gluba at a WVIK fundraiser, March 27, 2014.

Flying into Midway Airport on Independence Day I had the idea to see if I could see fireworks from the plane, and if so, videotape them.

Every little flash of light you see is probably consumer-grade fireworks. You can also see some large, professional ones going off.

I only had my little Samsung still camera with me so the contrast is not very sharp, but at least it was a clear, lovely night. As I was editing this I thought of all the violence in Chicago, then thought of the song “From a Distance”.

I got permission from songwriter Julie Gold and her publisher Christine Bilich to use the song under this video.

Also taken March 15, 2014. This photo is a bit over-edited in an effort to make his sign text more visible. I told him I’d post his photo on this blog.
