5 Stars for Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz

A long shot.....could be construed as a shot across the full court as the last few seconds of the clock expire to try and win the game.  A long shot....could be a hole in one drive down the fairway.   A long shot could be catepulting Yuri Gagarin into space.  Or, a long shot could be Howard Schultz's attempt to make a difference in our world, as Joe Nocera of the New York Times describes it.  Joe goes on to ask the it worth it?  I won't tell you his answer.  You can conjure up your own hypothesis as to what kind of a long shot is worth it.

Starbucks has been in the line of fire many times, but this time, I applaud Mr. Schultz in his attempt to DO SOMETHING about America's future....even he knows it's not all about sipping Carmel Mocchiato's as you wait for the train or while you catch up on the latest and greatest book club read at Barnes and Noble.  (aren't they excited about Borders demise)

No, even he knows there is something more to life.  We all have the power to affect, not just our future, but the next 7 generations.....(come on all you tree huggers, myself included, haven't you ever read the back of the 7th generations products?  Their mission is to to inspire a revolution that nurtures the health of the next seven generations)  Join the revolution.  Out of the mouth of an all American Baseball Hall of fame'r' (and first African American Baseball player and announcer).....Life is not a spectator sport.  If  you are going to spend your whole life in the grand stand just watching what goes on, in my opinion your wasting your life.  Jackie RobinsonJoin Howard TONIGHT at 7:30EST/4:30PST.  All you CEO's, corporate associates, political contributors and yes, you average American....take a stand.  Ciao for now.
