Yum, Yum

The other day, a lobster truck set up shop at lunchtime on Massachusetts Ave about 3 blocks east of Union Station. Within 15 minutes, the line was enormous, more a mass than a line. It went around the corner of the sidewalk, and was probably about two blocks long. It stayed that way for hours. It was like ravioli night at college, except I didn't want any.

And to think, all those people waiting for something that you could have as much as you wanted 200 years ago, provided you were in jail for not paying your debts.
