Sunday profiles:
Adding to the Dean information (see New Yorker profile below):
The Miami Herald's Peter Wallsten reports on Dean's summer job on a Florida ranch in 1965.
    "Laboring in the swamps for $1.15 an hour -- $1.25 on Sundays -- for 12 hours a day, Dean and several other teenagers worked alongside poor blacks, Mexican migrants and Cubans who had recently escaped Fidel Castro's revolution. His boss and surrogate dad for the summer was a Cuban immigrant whose son joined Dean in the fields, and Dean learned his first words of Spanish."

The Knight-Ridder series of candidate profiles features Dean today, too (Herald version here).
