I found this, originally, at LewRockwell.com

It's interesting and sad at the same time. Some idiot in the reader comment section just isn't getting it about the food at a diner though. Diners are NOT MEANT for vegetarians or vegans. And diners who don't change their menus are not closing up because of lack of business for people who eat real food, they are closing because of NYC and other cities high rent. Hey, if they wanna lose the money they're making off diners, so be it, a diner can open somewhere else and still be successful, albeit not "historical" anymore (as far as location, etc).

I wish someone would take an interest in restoring the old-fashioned lunchonette's (like the kind that used to be found in Woolworth's and Newberry's stores throughout Americana) at places all over creation (and not just big box stores, either). They would put walmart, target, et al to shame with the amount of business those would generate. If our local, home-owned drugstore where we shop had a lunchonette, I guarantee you people would be clamoring for the old-fashioned foods even if not at the old-fashioned prices. If I wasn't so damn old, you know, standing next to Methusala, I'd open one myself, just for the comfort of doing it and providing good food - sorry, no vegetarians or vegans allowed!
