    Good comment, D’man.

    The continuation on this story should be interesting.

    Don’t be surprised if parental responsibility is usurped in favor of corporate responsibility; in other words, it won’t be the parent’s fault, it will be Starbuck’s, and the high-chair, and the cup manufacturer, etc.

    Only cold drinks from now on…
