4 newspapers, 2 oranges, 1 banana

So I’m standing in line at Darwin’s this morning to get a Diet Coke and a Globe. And the tall guy in front of me wearing a Red Sox cap is buying four newspapers, two oranges, and a banana. I see it is David Gergen, advisor to Presidents, Kennedy School guru, and media pundit. I’m thinking of something smart to say to him when the clerk finishes ringing him up, like “that’s a lot of newspapers” or “that’s more newspapers than fruit” or maybe “are you sure that’s enough banana?” (OK, I didn’t think of that last one until just now). But his cell phone rings, and he’s talking to someone about ending the war in Iraq or something, and then he’s out the door.

David Gergen reads USA Today, the Boston Globe, the Wall Street Journal, and the Financial Times.
