The scene: an internet cafe/coffee shop in trendy, tony Hyde Park, a vibrant sector of trendy, tony Austin, Texas.
The time: just after dinner, election eve.
The crowd: trendy, tony 30-year-olds and younger. Deep into their laptops. Every seat was taken. Very little conversation. Soft music.
The set-up: at the counter, two trays of cookies. Each with a hand-lettered sign. Obama cookies, $1.50. Clinton cookies, $1.50.
The point: the Clinton tray was full; one cookie left in the Obama tray.
The question: were they fortune cookies?
