Coffee Woes

COFFEE WOES….On the ground reporting from Phoebe Connelly:

I’m here at the Personal Democracy Forum, and sad to report that they aren’t allowing coffee into the auditorium.

Say what? Is it just coffee? All liquid refreshment? Only liquid refreshment in cups larger than 3.5 ounces?

I’ve never in my life been to a conference that didn’t allow coffee into its main hall. What’s going on here? Inquiring minds want to know.
