Speaking of businesses and charities to boycot can anyone give me info on Starbucks? I heard something disturbing about them slighting the troops.

A viscious rumor that won't die.
Urban Legend.

Everytime someone posts a story on Free Republic about Starbucks supposedly dissin' the troops, it gets pulled within minutes. The stories aren't true, but the e-mails keep being sent, in one version or another, and some uninformed FReeper will keep posting them until the rumor fizzles out.

I had heard this from some lady while I was at the mechanics last Saturday. I didn't think it was right because I had heard that Starbucks does support the troops by furnishing coffee. I am relieved though since I do love their coffee and hate to add it to my list of things to boycott.

I wasn't aware of any unfair slight to Starbucks--but now I'm informed. I like the business. Any hope on finding poor little Penny? (g)
