The New Symbol of Our Nation's Capital

Everyone who went to DC for our convention was amazed at the sheer number of Starbucks stores on every block. There must have been at least three or four within walking distance of our hotel.

I was originally going to go as far as saying that the double-finned mermaid was our new national symbol, but that would be going too far.

Ironically, on July 1st, the second day of my stay, Starbucks announced it would close 600 stores across the country by the end of the year. I'll bet you that 1/5 of those stores will be in DC and NYC.
