An explosive device was found in a bathroom at a local San Francisco Starbucks. No injuries as police were able to diffuse the bomb. At the time of
this news submission, no suspects have been named by police officials. No one has claimed responsibility for the act.
About 100 people were evacuated and traffic on two busy San Francisco thoroughfares was rerouted Monday as police disabled a homemade bomb in the
restroom of a Starbucks coffee shop.
Mamoru Ogawa said police called the device a pipe bomb as they evacuated him, his wife and two customers from the sushi restaurant that he owns next
door to the building that houses the Starbucks.
The bomb squad disabled the device at about 2:10 p.m., and witnesses said they heard a popping sound at the time.

It is early to be drawing conclusions, but I will venture this...
Starbucks is a major "neon sign" that advertises the Western Culture and capitalism, along with Wal Mart, McDonalds, etc.
One would have to assume that this was not part of an elaborate al qaeda scheme, but an anti-establishment act of violence.
Perhaps, spreading fear was the only motive. Here on the West Coast, we have been immune, so to speak, from the major homeland terrorism. This could
bode badly for those on the other side of the continent.
Thank God the device was not detonated.
