The Rise and Fall of Starbucks




I'm fascinated by what Starbucks says about us as Americans -- at least those of us who can afford to go there and choose to do so. How did the company take hold so quickly, and what does it offer above and beyond its beverages? That's one of our topics tomorrow, as we talk with the author of, "Everything but the Coffee: Learning About America from Starbucks." The book's written by Temple University professor Bryant Simon.

This morning we had excellent listener questions for GOP gubernatorial candidate Tom Campbell. We're looking forward to having Jerry Brown with us, once he formally declares.
