Colleague David Mehegan points out below how happy Starbucks is with its strong sales of Mitch Albom's new novel "For One More Day." The book follows Albom's wildly successful "Tuesdays with Morrie" and "The Five People You Meet in Heaven." Basically, the Detroit sportswriter has become the master of moral uplift with a violin chaser.

The big question now, though, is how should feisty regional rival Dunkin' Donuts respond? How about by selling copies of "The Five People You Meet in Hell" by Rich Pablum" or "The Five Jerks You Meet on Earth" by Ray Zardetto. Or "Wednesdays With Barry" by Terry Amann or "Thursdays With Moses" by Brad Densmore or "Fridays With Art" by Dick Woollen. Or....

The possibilities aren't endless, but they're closer to it than they ought to be.
