obama, early years

upon hearing obama's maternal grandmother is ill and barack is leaving the campaign trail to visit her in hawaii, i read up a bit on his early days. i love these old pictures. i haven't read obama's book, but i am more interested in it now, after reading a bit of his description of growing up in hawaii. i'm surprised we don't hear more about his childhood. father from kenya, mother from hawaii, father leaves to move to the mainland and Harvard, mother remarries and moves with barack to Indonesia, after baby sister born, barack shipped back to hawaii to live with his grandparents, to grow up in a community as the only african american. fascinating
