Pro-anti-war? The Starbucks Empire Drives On
My wife just called me and told me to boycott Starbucks because they refused to send coffee to soldiers in Iraq. Well, seeing as I was a work (and at a much faster connection than at home) I Googled that.
I found that the story she had heard was based on a hoax email (evidence of the power and danger of the uncontrolled internet) that has since been debunked (by the hoaxer).
I was also surprised to find that Starbucks themselves are being protested against for supporting the GWOT and for forcably exporting American culture worldwide (I guess they should put tobacco-esque warning labels on the cups: "Warning! Coffee is extremely habit forming...").
Personally, I'm boycotting Starbucks because it's too durn expensive and they can't use regular words like small, medium and large.
