Letter to the editor
By JULIE JONES
Tuesday night I saw a very awe inspiring and just all around good sight. It appeared that a good portion of the Knox College student body was pouring out of the campus and marching up the side of Cherry Street toward Main Street.
As they were walking they were shouting, laughing, and chanting, â€œObama, Obama â€¦â€ During the evening and early night I had caught snippets of gatherings like that in distant large cities, but I didnâ€™t think I would see something quite like it in Galesburg.
