Um, is this news?

Earlier this week it seemed like every news outlet and program fell for the "story" about the Starbucks chain closing the doors at almost 7,100 of its U.S. coffee shops for three hours on Tuesday...just to give the baristas a refresher course on espresso standards.

Okay, is this supposed to be "news?" Talk about being a corporate lapdog.

With all that coverage you'd think that Britney Spears had died and Starbucks was paying tribute to her frequent patronage in the past few months by flying the flag half-mast at all of its franchises.
