Christine McMorrow was using dictation to leave a comment on a story online when a friend dropped by. The phone kept recording, so her online comments started out about politics. Then there's a reference to hard-boiled eggs, Cape Cod and a wounded knee. New York Magazine called it the single best comment of the year. This is MORNING EDITION.
