IC-SPAN: Is that John Edwards on your lap?

It’s been a long time since I’ve worried what my fellow public transportation riders think of my reading material. There have been too many picture books, middle-grade novels, and tawdry celebrity biographies (Hello, Zsa, Zsa!) for that. But I must admit on recent commutes, I kept my copy The Politician by Andrew Young firmly in my lap. There was something so tawdry about this tell-all that I felt embarrassed reading it. Of course, I’m sure some of my fellow riders had tuned in to watch the Young interview on 20/20 and/or Good Morning America. They got all the salient points and saved themselves the $20-odd bucks.
