The big, quiet front room would be a good haunt for USM students. They could bring their books, milk their coffees (Coffee By Design drip, not Arabic), and get a few affordable meals to fuel a long study session. The next year will determine whether the US adventure in Iraq will be a regrettable learning experience for future college students to study, or a long-term occupation to which their peers will deploy. It will be a telling year for StarEast Café as well — and in the short term the place could use, and deserves, a temporary surge.
