Comment Type: editorial
Summary of Issue: incorrect word used
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
It is inappropriate to use this spelling of the word "queue". The correct word is "cue".
Google defines "queue (v.)" as (1) take one's place in a queue, or (2) arrange in a queue. The correct word in this context is "cue" which Google defines as (v.) set a piece of audio or video equipment in readiness to play (a particular part of the recorded material).

Proposed Change:
change "queue" to "cue"
