The cheapest of cheap shots. Starbucks is over-represented in the coffee house market; its looks, flavors and aromas are tired and over-used. But a decent cup of coffee there -- at about $1.50 -- is no more expensive than it is at many other places. Starbucks provides living wage jobs with benefits to a great many people. It provides a market umbrella, and higher demand, that benefit independent coffee houses. So, one might hope they can pull themselves out of this nosedive with some creativity and prudent financial management. Personally, I would not like to see all those storefronts vacant and all those baristi out of work.
