Forbidden City Starbucks closes
In one way, I'm sorry I missed seeing the Forbidden City Starbucks .

I was looking forward to mocking it's presence in such an important and iconic location.

On the other hand, I'm glad people were upset about it enough to do something. I can't believe it took seven years to realize that something so crassly commercial and capitalistic, doesn't belong in such an important historical setting.
