It’s 2:15 Friday afternoon and we’re in line. That’s what one does at SoxFest. We stand for a while in the cattle-chute railings that are set up in the Empire Room after waiting for a time like scattered leaves in the Palmer House lobby. That time spent standing becomes too much time and we sit on the floor.
