Mr. Madison is a law professor at Pitt and has been in town about seven years. Which is about twice as long as your favorite panini guy (moi). While the subhead of the Pittsblog site reads: "Optimism in and around Pittsburgh", it appears the definition of "optimism" seems stretched at times.
Melanie and I aren't the type to use our store as a platform for politics (other than support for Fair Trade) but then again, we're a coffeehouse. And coffeehouses were created to facilitate discussion and debate. So why not embrace our legacy.
Plus, in his screed, Michael was kind enough to call Aldo Coffee Co. "hands-down the most interesting coffeehouse in town" (see his point #2), for which we thank him profusely.
To show our thanks, we'd like to show Michael how interesting we - rather, you, our customers - are.
Who knows, maybe we can start some regular roundtable discussions on topics like this.
