i'm sure the local affiliate fired its copy editors long ago, and it's a sunday night, etc. etc., but CBS not even bothering for a proof read on an obituary for clicks. how you honor people matters.

I know it's not the point but just reading this short article, full of typos (including in someone's quote), fucking up the name of his high school, and the dehumanizing headline... this kid deserved so much more in life and deserves more care in how the news covers his death

According to our Store Manager and some anti Union SSVs the new “policy” at our store is to close the cafe if any Teacher’s Union groups approach the store. How is banning teachers from your store creating a 3rd Place @Starbucks @HowardSchultz ? #UnionStrong
