The Wall Street Journal reports that Howard Schultz is pretty darn fired up:

“We are going to bring this company back!” Mr. Schultz practically shouted at a meeting with managers in New York in April. The idea of skeptics that the battered stock won’t recover is “total bull-” he said, his voice rising.

Gotta admire his passion – that and his caffeine tolerance; the guy probably bleeds espresso.
