    Default Bensons and Swiss Speeding Ticket

    I have to assume that Benson's business volume did not justify the rent for the location, that is usually the cause.

    And on another note, here is a story from Switzerland
    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,582394,00.html

    ST. GALLEN, Switzerland A Swiss court has slapped a wealthy speeder with a chalet-sized fine a full $290,000.
    Judges at the cantonal court in St. Gallen, in eastern Switzerland, based the record-breaking fine on the speeder's estimated wealth of over $20 million.
    A statement on the court's Web site says the driver a repeat offender drove up to 35 miles an hour faster than the 50-mile-an-hour limit.
    Court clerk Heidi Baumann-Becker said Thursday the unidentified driver can appeal the decision, handed down in November, to the Swiss supreme court.
    The Blick daily newspaper in Zurich reported the fine was more than twice the previous Swiss record of about $107,000.

    Now this seems like a good idea.... it turns out that the size of the fine was in direct proportion to the on-record wealth of the offender which was determined by the court to be over $20,000,000.00.

    The rich pay more and the poor pay less for the same crime !
    What a great revenue generating idea.

    Benson's is being taken over by a Thai restaurant that is moving there from Mill Village in Sudbury. The restaurant owner (of Sweet Pepper) is telling their current customers. The new restaurant will be called Pepper and Spice.

    So we have a Mexican Place moving in where Morn's was and Pepper and Spice moving into Benson's. Now it's time to find something interesting to go into Finnerty's old space...

    You're very welcome, Ben. By the way, I just saw a new post on the Jose's Mexican Restaurant Facebook page that they are targeting February 14 for their Grand Opening. Muy Bueno!
