Et tu, Starbucks?

OK, now this is getting serious. Even Starbucks is shedding jobs and closing shops. Starbucks! I thought they were growing like crazy? Are people now going without their morning jolt of caffeine? Can America even function properly without easy access to the daily Mint Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino blended creme with Chocolate Whipped Cream?

The news of the Starbucks slow down got me thinking about coffee. Is it a normal good? Is it a want? Is it a need? I guess it depends on your level of coffee addicition.
