Oh, for the love of Pete,

I try to be polite towards strangers, but I really want to ask this woman if she'd stop reading a newspaper on the basis of inclusion of the same quote. For heaven's sake, it's a coffee cup -- a disposable one at that. (Had she kept the recyclable sleeve on the cup to protect her fingers from the heat, she'd never have known the quote was there.)

Perhaps she falls into the 79% of Americans referenced in this 1999 article from The Onion.

Sorry, folks, it isn't yet 9 am and I haven't had my own Starbucks. The patience hasn't kicked in.
