But, I Just Want a Cup of Coffee...

August 15th, 2007 5:03 PM
Starbucks shops across the U.S. today are hosting global warming discussions in 60 cities nationwide - and touting a new global warming movie by the studio that distributed Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth."

The new movie, "Arctic Tale," which follows a polar bear and walrus "as their beautiful icebound world" "melts beneath them." will be promoted during today's Starbucks "National Day of Discussion" at stores nationwide.

"We can spark discussion on this issue and impact change from right inside our stores," Starbucks Entertainment president Ken Lombard says.

So, when did Starbucks get in the movie promotion, "it's our job to save the world by educating the ignorant little people" business? And, while we're at it, why does Starbucks even have an "entertainment" group president, anyway?

Can't I just go into the place and get a cup of coffee without being preached to about how I'm destroying the planet unless I repent and see the latest leftist "global warning" movie? It's just a coffee shop; all I want is coffee; why can't I just get a nice cup of coffee?

Or, maybe, I've already had enough for today...
