It breaks my heart that the Tinman Diner will be closing. Sadly the owners have fallen behind on the rent and their landlord is evicting them. Personally as a landlord myself I think their rent is way too high and due to the economic times their landlord should cut them a break. They are only one month behind. Not only me but the entire community will be sad to see them go.

I checked this out because of its title (I'm a diner enthusiast), but stuck with it because its characters were so compelling -- and then the story got me. What shines through is the sense of a community banding together to save a local institution. Even when the chips are down, when people are cutting back, you get the sense that places like the Tinman will survive, simply because its customers won't allow it to die.
The piece is well-produced and sound-rich, with a nice balance of narration, background/ambient effects and interviews.
