I was dithering whether or not to stay in line or just sit down at one of the lonely computers, since no one at the head of the line seemed compelled to use any of them, when someone else came up, someone really loud, willing to ask the questions out loud that I am not, and, half-asking, half-yelling, said, “YOU PEOPLE ARE ALL IN LINE FOR THE WINDOWS THINGIES, RIGHT?”

They were.
