Starbucks schooling

Amid world-wide concern that Seattle may not have enough espresso to stay awake and keep up its side of conversation, coffee buffs rallied today in mass demonstration to support espresso and oppose taxes.

What's our alternative to this well-meaning but ill-advised legislation to tax espresso in order to fund pre-school activities? Let a thousand espresso bars offer day care! After all, they are already doing it for the middle-aged.

Yes. But they must also serve ice cream.

See what I mean about how we don't want the government deciding what a school is. Great bloggers think alike.
