Letter to the Editor

ell, folks, the wait is over-Starbucks is hiring once again! But before you go buttering up your references, you might be interested in a tragically amusing bit of irony. The sign on the window of the campus Starbucks reads \Create Community... Apply Within,"" proudly emblazoned over a painting of an employee holding the door for some customers. I've never known Starbucks to employ doormen, but, even if they did, I'm sure it would not contribute to any lasting sense of community on State Street or anywhere else. I know Starbucks has its regulars, and maybe some of them even have a favorite Starbucks, but if we're talking about community, I'd like to know whose definition of the word includes cookie-cutter chain stores. In the aftermath of the Halloween destruction, it is more important than ever to support Madison's small business owners or we'll be seeing a lot more Starbucks ""communities"" very soon.
