With concern about the size of the average American waistline, do we really need anymore "drive-thrus"? Add to the dietary concern that of pollution and global warming of cars waiting in line to be served.

Here's a novel suggestion: "walk-ups"

Windows that can serve all after hours, whether they arrived by car, bicycle, or foot.
