Work first. Juice boxes later.

Kid reporter Damon Weaver (taking a break from his day job as a student at Kathryn E. Cunningham/Canal Point Elementary School) turns in this dispatch from a Biden campaign rally. The apex of cuteness comes when Weaver’s arms get tired from holding the mic as high as he can to interview Biden. Or maybe it’s when he he observes that the rally is a lot like a party, and that “they played tight music.”

Weaver’s one question is to ask Biden to explain what a Vice President does. Huh. Guess that’s what all the kids want to know.
