Ah For A Cup of Joe

I was changing channels last night, and that commercial for "Save the Children," wherein the guy with the beard says, “For the price of a cup of coffee, just 97 cents a day…" came on. Well, my little Junior Rain Man, who never misses a detail and gets to have a hot chocolate whenever I need to make a Starbucks stop, blurted out “97 Cents?! You should get your coffee there, ‘cause yours costs like four bucks!" Unfortunately, I'm not sure that he fully grasped the fiscal liabilities involved in traveling to a third-world country to buy a cup of coffee.
