"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Rebecca sez:
Losers. Every last one of them.

Item! As of 6:47pm today, about a dozen men and women were lined up outside Cody's Books bearing blankets and coffee. Though early speculation indicated that the patrons were competing to be the first in the East Bay to pick up the long-awaited "Best of BBQ" issue of Sunset Magazine, further investigation revealed that they were in line to meet former president Bill Clinton tomorrow at noon.

Listen, folks. If you want to have an impersonal and rushed encounter with a former president, catch Jimmy Carter when he's in the middle of laying 2"X4" studs in the future house of some Guatamalan family. Or rub a $5 bill on your nipple. Don't waste your money on a mediocre book, and certainly don't waste your time camping our on Telegraph. You just might wake up with herpes.
Meanwhile, in the comments to a CalStuff post, Tommaso sez:
Cody's isn't giving out any more tickets. People with tickets (about 900) will get to go ahead of those in line. I might try to spend the night before to get a signature.
Uh oh.

Maybe the resolution is in semantics: 6:47 at this time of year falls nearly two hours before sunset, so maybe just "spending the night" does not cross Ms Brown's loser threshold.

Let's just hope nobody initiates Plan R or anything like that. :)
