in other blogs: (yesterday) smelly sandwiches, metro advises against daredevilism, trendwatching, parking and riding, tree trimming

  • Shultz thinks the smell cooking food overwhelms the aroma of coffee; so Starbucks is evicting warm breakfast sandwiches from the menu at an average cost of $35,000 per store. (ed: (1) is this averaged over all stores? if so, this must mean a lot of money for the minority of stores that actually sell heated foods. (2) it’s too bad that in Seattle I think that Starbucks is more competitive, taste-wise, in the breakfast foods market than in the espresso market.) [starbucksgossip]
  • Among the announcements regarding the quarterly changes in Metro schedules—yay! more #8s thanks to SLU largesse—is this somewhat surprising public service announcement: “Never Attempt to Board a Moving Bus”. (ed: is this analogous to the MTA’s warning about not riding on the outside of subway cars?) [metrokc ]
