The cup will put you to sleep but the coffee will wake up you
: I missed this before but 601am belatedly wakes me up to the news and I hadn’t even noticed because the brown this-cup-is-too-hot-for-human-consumption thing covered them up but Starbucks, ever in search of a new form of cultural pap, is quoting grande celebs (that is, merely medium) on its cups, and some of them include: Al Franken, Goldie Hawn, Ken Auletta, Yo-Yo Ma, Keith Olbermann, Melissa Etheridge , Ken Burns, Jonah Goldberg, Po Bronson, Quincy Jones, Chuck D, Deepak Chopra. Gag me with a double latte.
Noah benShea’s quote: “Do not kiss your children so they will kiss you back but so they will kiss their children, and their childrenís children.” That belongs on a doilie, not a cup.
And Goldberg’s: “Everywhere, unthinking mobs of ìindependent thinkersî wield tired clichÈs like cudgels, pummeling those who dare question ìenlightenedî dogma. If ìviolence never solved anything,î cops wouldnít have guns and slaves may never have been freed. If itís better that 10 guilty men go free to spare one innocent, why not free 100 or 1,000,000? ClichÈs begin arguments, they donít settle them.” That is here because it wouldn’t fit on a Hummer bumpersticker.
