Today’s Queue header was brought to you by Phil Davis Giles, who tweeted it at me yesterday while I was recovering from my eye injections — you know, the ones I need to keep being able to see but which hurt a lot. So I was very appreciative to get such a cool picture, based on my ranting during last week’s Queue.

Let’s Queue this.
