Waiting in Line

I am so tired of hearing about the Powerball lottery and seeing people standing in long lines to buy a ticket! What's amazing to me are senior citizens standing in a line for an hour or more.  I did get a kick out of this comparison, though: "Keith Davidson, 64, made his own call to ask his friend John Kaahui, 79, if he wanted to go for tickets. Waiting for Powerball tickets seemed like something for the Las Vegans to do, Davidson said, and no wait could faze him. In 1994, he said, he spent eight hours in line in Yorba Linda, Calif., to see the body of the recently deceased President Richard Nixon. That wait wasn't worth it, he said; the casket was closed."
