The Political Year in Pictures – 2014 (December 26, 2014)
Over the course of the last year we covered a number of government and political events in Missouri (and elsewhere), in the process taking thousands of photographs. Most of them didn’t make it into the blog. Some of the things we saw and heard made us smile, made us think, made us gasp, made us hope, and made us despair. We thought we’d continue our retrospective of some of the pictures and stories we consider to be memorable.
