Obama Barbecues Across the Street from Farrakhan

The rest of the article tells about, what appears to be a civil conversation between the Secret Service and Farrakhan's security force. What is interesting is the neighborhood Obama lived in and the intense security Farrakhan has.

Just a few blocks from Obama’s home in the Kenwood/Hyde Park neighborhood, Obama’s friend Marty Nesbitt lives across the street from the ornate yellow-gold home where Farrakhan lives.
