Life inside the Astrodome

BoingBoing pointed readers in a recent post to a Flickr photostream from photographer Jacob Applebaum, who is reporting from inside the Houston Astrodome. He had this to say on his corresponding blog:
The media censorship here runs high. It was not easy to actually enter the dome as media. I am working with the group 'Austin Airwaves' and our badge says 'PRESS' in huge white letters on a red background. This has caused unending red tape. I have been the subject of removal a few times, bordering on a dozen. My camera draws the most fire.
