    The public will be able to access the coffee area from a patio. Inside they will find tables, a fireplace, television, cash register and Wi-Fi.
    That's awesome. It would be such a bother to miss a game for a viewing.

    And I foresee frequent FB updates saying, "I see dead people"

    I wonder if they serve Cremora in urns?
    I heard this one on the radio "Roast in peace".

    I like the comment below the article about Starbucks coffee being very strong (I agree!) but that it isn't likely to wake the dead

    Well, I guess it's the best place to get coffee if you're just dying for a cup.

    ...But the most fascinating question has nothing to do with Scientology’s beliefs: Why is Scientology tax exempt? (And should it, perhaps, not be?)

    The best way to begin answering this is to first puncture a popular misconception. People often conflate recognition as a religion and recognition as a tax exempt § 501(c)(3) entity as being effectively the same thing. But the IRS does not make determinations of an entity’s religiosity. In fact, the IRS is constitutionally prohibited from even entertaining the question. Whether Scientology is or is not a religion is thus a red herring–a philosophical as opposed to legal question, far outside the scope of the tax exemption question....

    I think that chain serving stiff drinks would have been more appropriate.
