I'm asking for the check

"I'm putting iTunes on the office computer," I told my husband this morning. "It's the only place to buy 'Vertigo' legally right now, and I downloaded it so I need to buy it."
"Fine," he said.
When the application had installed, I bought the song ("single version") first thing. We listened to it (just to make sure it hadn't changed since last night, I guess) and as it was winding up I went to the iTunes store homepage, which turned out to feature a huge, three-column U2 banner promoting the iTunes exclusive on "Vertigo."
My husband saw it and laughed. "Good for them!" he said. "They're making friends for themselves by means of the unrighteous mammon. They're not going to get outdone by the sons of this world."
