I am upset at the news from the present owner that the landmark "Tail of the Cock" is to be razed so that another shopping mall can be built. Although, as he said, the "Tail" is doing well, the property can bring a higher return, which is a sign of the times.
In a Valley landscape already littered with too many office buildings and shopping malls, both mini and otherwise, it would be a desecration to remove one of the last of the restaurants that are not high-tech, noisy or priced into the stratosphere. The "Tail" has a look of a country inn and an ambiance sorely missing these days.
I hope the powers-that-be can do something so that this gem will last another 40 years.
