Live Broadcast from the United Nations Headquarters

It seems to me that nobody wants to get excited anymore. Maybe it rests upon the theory that only the unsophisticated get pumped up over things. Well, maybe that is true, I don't know. But what I do know is that today at the United Nations Headquarters was absolutely incredible.
It was early in the day and I decided to wander around. I walked up to the second floor near the Security Council and it was clear that something was going on. A couple of UN reporters were preparing for something so I asked what was going on. One of the guys told me that General Secretary Kofi Annan was expected in a matter of minutes and that he was expected to make a short statements and to answer a few questions. Well, how could I pass this up? After all, the SG was going to be within arm's reach of me. And as I alluded to above, I was excited. Unsophisticated, maybe but excited.
This was how the day at the UN Headquarters started to rev up for me before my live broadcast.
