Comments: So Long, Starbucks! It's Been Swell.

There are many good reasons to get one's knickers in twist - not sure this is one of them. It is certainly no affront to liberty.

Given Starbuck's previous fortitude in not buckling to anti-gun forces, The Refugee will simply roll his eyes at the cup jackets while continuing to enjoy a steaming non-fat mocha.

The Refugee is clearly more splendid than I.

Your point is taken. In my defense, I'd suggest it is less an attack on liberty as on reason; this is decaf philosophy with lots of caramel and whipped cream on top. Continued consumption could be deleterious to discretion.

I'm with jk. Urbanity is second cousin to Political Correctness and the extent of its ooze must be resisted. In a free market we express displeasure "with our feet."

Taken along with Duke University's new "word discouragement" campaign I wonder if I would still be able to place my order anyway: "Venti Pike Place, Black."

What was that place in Erie again? Black Dog something?

Black Dog Coffee is a superb independent place in the strip mall on Hwy 7 kinda-cater-corner in the development to le Condo d'Amour. The use Ozo as their roaster and have a talented and friendly staff.

We should all meet there and try to talk some sense into The Refugee...

I was drinking coffee when I read that. Thankfully, I have a talent for laughing with my lips closed tightly.

Yes, I'm in. BR?

Sorry, I'm way late here. If it's not too late, yes, I'm in.

No Statute of Limitations on Coffee!

Anytime -- I'm the guy who works from home a mile away. Let me know what works for y'all.
