Purple Line intelligentsia?
This morning I had to drop my car for service in Evanston, so I boarded the Purple Line at Main.
In the car I entered, I immediately noticed lots of readers. A quick count showed just three of the 21 people on the car were NOT reading. That seems high compared to my Red Line commutes in the morning. That's not to say that there are no readers on the Red Line. Just that there seemed to be more on the Purple.
So does that mean Purple Liners are smarter?
Nah! They just have a longer way to go to get to the Loop or wherever.
There were just as many romance-novel readers scattered in with the magazine and newspaper readers.
Anything to make the time go by and enrich the soul.
