Lines? Where We’re Going We Don’t Need Lines

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

Waiting in line to get into a taping of Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me with Eddie and his family, we were all blown away by the line itself. We’ve all been in lines that snake back and forth before, but I’ve never been in a line that snakes back and forth without any sort of ropes or dividers.

Eddie: It’s an NPR crowd.

And an NPR crowd it was. It was so docile I wanted to pet it as everyone quietly zig-zagged around imaginary ropes on their way to the door.

The show was great and I’m proud that it’s recorded here in Chicago. Hopefully they don’t get big egos and move to New York. This American Life, I’m looking at you.
