On the Yellow Brick Road

Here are some pictures from the NBC picket line this morning. I’m the yellow munchkin.

A woman writer asked me if it was true that John Edwards was coming to the NBC picket line later in the afternoon. I said that it was. She beamed.Pb150079

"I love him so much," she said. "I think it’s great that he can talk to the dead."

"That’s John Edward," I said. "This is John Edwards."
"There’s only one  famous John Edward," she said. "And he talks to dead people."
"This John Edwards is running for President," I said.
She gave me a long look. "Does he talk to dead people, too?"

That was an honest-to-God conversation I had. On a picket line with elderly munchkins handing out donut holes. This is a strange world we live in.
