Fighting Cocks Go Down

This breaking news story reminded me of a radio interview I heard a few months back with someone from the Restaurant Association who said "Right now owning a restaurant bar is a little like when you got your orders for Viet Nam: they told you to take a good look at the person on your left and your right because the odds were that one of you would not be coming back home."  Latest victim of this effect is England's oldest pub the Ye Olde Fighting Cocks.  (Yep, sure are a lot of jokes to be made at their expense.)
