New Chet's Down

Fox, Via Drudge:

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio restaurant mentioned last week by President Barack Obama as an indirect beneficiary of the government's Chrysler bailout will go out of business Sunday after a more than 70-year history.

Co-owner Richard Lawrence of New Chet's Restaurant in Toledo says business has fallen victim to the economy and the workplace smoking ban approved by Ohio voters in 2006.

What rotten luck. They went under before higher taxes, mandated health insurance, inflated energy costs, and an easier to unionize workforce could save them. And they were that close.
