    ok I had to chime in

    I personally will not buy starbucks coffee anyways, the way they roast there beans always tastes a touch to much with a bitter hint to me.

    I also find it absurd that this much attention is being garnered by a company that is complying with all local laws. But then again these are the same yuppies that buy a house within a mile of an airport then complain about those darned planes, or next to a dairy farm and complain about the smell. So I will be fair and say I might be asking to much.

    The way I see it, the absurdity is that the Brady Bunch tantrums are the cause of the headlines, twisted to make it sound like Starbuck's is the bad guy in all of it. The "bad guy" isn't Starbuck's. Rather, it is the Bradys and their attempt to use the Constitution as kindling for every fire they light.

    I'd say they can go pound sand, if it weren't for the fact that they're so damned dangerous, and that so many elected putzes listen to their rantings.

    I'm sure the Brady Bunch is populated by many of those people. Wouldn't surprise me one bit.

    I never was much of a starbuck's fan myself. There was a time, for a minute, that I lived in close to spitting distance from the original starbucks. Nothing about living right in there with the most historical starbucks places could convince me to proactively of my own accord with all choice left up to me (e.g., not on a coffee run at the behest of coworkers without taste buds) to go into a starbucks and plunk down my money for one of their beverages.

    On the occasions when I have bought starbucks coffee, I have found that hands-down the best option taste-wise is the most crap-filled option on the beverage menu, as that one will cover up the burnt taste of ruined coffee beans. Getting a regular drip coffee? big mistake. I once asked them 3 times could they make a fresh cup? this one is obviously burned through from sitting on the burner too long. It took that many spit-the-crap-out-of-my-mouth experiences to realize that really, their coffee is just that bad even when made fresh just for you.

    I applaud them for their oh-so-courageous stance to "comply with local laws". I will not, however, be contributing to any jumps in share prices on the merits of, and only based on the merits of, their horrible coffee.
