I was going to get all snark-tastic in response to this “article,” but then decided against it. I think they call that personal growth! Trust me, no one is more excited than I about this development.
Then I scrolled down to the comment section and saw that someone had already done the job for me:

First it was smoking, then teen driving and more recently the nutritional value of public school lunches. Next up, Groupon. Good or bad, the Tribune has found itself a new obsession for year 2011.
The bulk of the people patronizing Groupon self-absorbed “crazy busy” yuppies/transplants who, outside of playing marathon-training, have a boatload of free time. Maybe they should have been out there shoveling all that snow a few weeks ago instead of sitting inside blogging about “dibs.”
Give it time. The economy will pick-up and Groupon will fade away. Unfortunately, we cannot say the same about the yuppies.
