Thank you, Craig.  That is 60 miles (95km) from me, and is a town that I do
not willingly visit, as it is most difficult to reach -- apprently, the
folks in Lynchburg pissed of Big Harry Byrd in the later 1950's so that he
made certain that Lynchburg is hard to reach by normal roads.  It is, I
believe, the largest city in the US not served by an Interstate.

Lynchburg, being the home of several large corporations, is dripping in
wealth, so I am not surprised that a Starbucks exists there.  But, trust
me, I will not be visiting this soon.
