In case you're coming down for Oprah...

Don't forget your good manners.

I know Michigan Avenue will be atwitter (aflush, a-crowded, a mob scene) with O fans who will just be dying to get a closer glimpse of her today.

But let's remember our good crowd behavior:

  • No pushing or shoving.
  • If you need to get past someone, say, "Excuse me."
  • Especially if you're tall, avoid the urge to cram past someone,then plant yourself right before her, effectively blocking the view that she rightfully had before you so rudely cut in.
  • No doubt you'll be patronizing the businesses on and near Michigan Avenue; be kind to the shopkeepers.
Let's keep it respectful, Oprah fans.
