Midway along my route to work, there is a small town with a couple stop signs, put there just to slow me down and make me consume extra fuel. At a corner where I make one of those stops I watched with interest as work was done to replace a Chinese restaurant with a Barbecue joint. In my youth I worked at/managed two different restaurants and heard over and over how, when opening a new eatery, you needed to have enough capital to keep the doors open for a year in order to establish a positive cash-flow. Four months after this Barbecue shop opened, I turned to take a look while stopped and had to pull into the parking lot so I could share this bit of irony with you:

Yes, the place is shuttered and closed for good. Wonder if someone would like to try a Chinese Restaurant on that site?
