The Seattle paper reports 1,000 jobs
to be cut at headquarters and in the field.
McDonald's releases 4th quarter results on Monday and
Starbucks on Wednesday.
Of course this week the media will play it like McDonald's
is stomping on Starbucks.
Yup, 4,000 McDonald's stores selling 30 or 40 specialty
coffees a day is hurting Starbucks worldwide. Kind of
like when the Arch Deluxe killed off the Whopper.
