*Our wounded economy is apparently taking its toll on Starbucks, whose profits have dropped 97 percent in the last quarter. Ouch. No recession lattes? McDonald’s however, seems to be picking up business. Is it the dollar menu, the McCafe, or just the overall “value”? Personally I think it’s because they won’t put cream and sugar in your coffee for you at Starbucks like they do at McDonalds. So much for service.
