It sounds like only the ones who missed out on the vouchers are those that "retired" to the parking garage. Unfortunate, but that's life.
Also, didn't the article say that when they came out the next morning that someone had taken their place in line, or something like that? I couldn't quite figure that out. Regardless, how does one leave the line for an entire night and expect to keep his/her place? Or was someone supposed to be saving it for them?
