Actually, he was eating a pancake. (Meade makes pancakes nearly every morning. When he gave me mine this morning, he said "Here's your circle of grain for the morning," because the evening circle of grain, Meade-made, is pizza.)
I'd just said: "There's a big civil disobedience event at the Capitol in 15 minutes."
Did Meade continue to eat his pancake or did Meade stop mid-'cake to answer the new media call?
