Morford on Starbucks

Mark Morford from SFGATE has a great column on Starbucks today. Not only does he plug Peets coffee - one of the things I miss most about the SF Bay Area, but he puts his finger on perhaps the biggest problem with Starbucks, namely:
See, like most massive forces of cultural mediocrity, Starbucks' particular brand of evil is flecked with glimmers of actual quality. This is, of course, what makes them so goddamn dangerous.

Like Mark I have one thing that I really like about Starbucks, they are smoke free, here in Switzerland it's almost worth going there for that alone.
