HALFWAY The line to see Dora the Explorer, straight from the television cartoon to the shopping mall, stretched on for hours on Saturday. That's right: The estimated time from the tail of the line to a picture pose with Dora in Valley Mall's center court was, at times, three to four hours. And still, they stood. By one rough count just after noon, about 700 people were in a line that snaked back and forth a few times, extended toward Sears, wrapped around an inflatable bouncy castle and ran the length of the mall, just short of JCPenney on the opposite end. "This is bigger than Santa Claus," said Jo Kershner, the mall's supervisor of security.
