Coffee shops

I think this article at Slate has a point: Don’t Fear Starbucks.  Before Starbucks (at least in Dallas) the only place to get an espresso was after supper at an Italian restaurant.  Or at least that’s my guess — I never got espresso B.S. (Before Starbucks) and never even looked for it.  Back in the B.S. days the only coffee to get was regular old coffee and the only place to get it was diners and convenience stores.  There may have been a couple of neighborhood barista-type coffee shops around Dallas but I never saw one.  But in the years A.S. I have seen plenty of non-Starbucks coffee shops.  Sure there are more Starbucks than there are of the locally-owned shops, but B.S. there were neither.
