Let me tell you a bit about my featured customer and first to purchase a copy of THE FALL. Monsignor Mike Slattery of Blessed Kateri Catholic Church is a daily bright spot in my morning. And if you can’t tell from the pic, he’s a stinker. His favorite greeting is to try to startle me and since I usually sit with my back to the room, this is fairly easily accomplished. He’s a font of wisdom but usually prefers to make me laugh rather than dazzle with theology. When I started writing at Starbucks every morning about five years ago, I never expected to gain such wonderful coffee shop cronies like Father Mike. What lovely fringe benefits!
