Chicago Trib columnist Tom Mullaney writes a long heartfelt breakup letter to Starbucks and details why the company is struggling. It's the calorie-laden food and drinks, the high staff turnover, the "Starbucks' superior attitude," but most of all it's just not hip anymore: "For the first dozen years, Starbucks was a destination stop.
