The Cookbook tragedy

Who knew? The Cookbook Restaurant in Palo Alto's Town and Country shopping center loses it's lease and we are left to read daily updates for the better part of a week. I know that local papers like to grab onto local stories to prove their relevance, but this only shows the dearth of local news. If the place was this popular it wouldn't be closing. State Senator Joe Simitian's support shows the extent he'll go to promote himself. How pathetic.

I agreed. The summer doldrums must be taking a toll in the news room. I find the liberal media simply rearranges their biases and prejudices to fit each situation and “create a story” where none exists. Truth be told, the restaurant was not that good and was poorly located. Sure, a few locals were regular customers, but this place made no economic sense for the owner or the center. Restaurants come and go every year in the area. We do not see stories about the good ones, because they are not closing… Basic capitalism at work here and it grates the local liberal sensibilities to the raw core...launch the search for the evil oppressor.

You're right Jay. Restaurants come and go all the time. Bolton's appointment should give 'em an opportunity to get out of the kitchen and write a new headline about how awful it is to allow someone into the UN that isn't head=over-heels in love with it. We're not supposed to notice the corruption, just like we used to ignore the Cookbook.

must be easy to sit up on high and judge.

liberal sensibilities ... c'mon ... we're talkin' about a bloomin' restaurant, folks.

enough people loved that place and it makes perfect sense for the local media to do a story about it.
