You Loud, Socializing, Chatty Capitol File Party People

A reader writes in to note that, at last night’s Capitol File party, Iman and some of the other speakers were miffed that people continued to chat and socialize as they talked about AIDS in Africa.

Well, welcome to Washington. We’re so used to hearing boring speeches that it may not immediately hit us when there’s something worthwhile being said.

>UPDATE: A reader writes in, “Also, the acoustics were dreadful at the Capitol File event. If you weren’t standing immediately below the speakers you wouldn’t have been able to hear them or their annoyed-sounded shushing.”
