Scantily Clad Barristas?

It is OK that people, like myself, are coffee snobs.

It is OK that people favor one coffee shop over others.

It is OK that there is extreme competition between coffee shops.

It is even OK that one particular coffee shop in the greater Seattle area has chosen to "outfit" their Barristas in the skimpiest of 'uniforms'. (I believe that said 'uniforms' were worn voluntarily by said Barristas. )

It is NOT OK, in my opinion, for a venerable news organization like CBS Sunday Morning to showcase such a blatant 'grab' at the pulchritude of market share. It was a cheap shot and not even espresso.
