I can't help myself from wondering if there isn't some kind of injection
that might work on that butcher. Crying shame about that brisket after
all the work trying to get the butcher educated. But it can be salvaged.
It's hard to say about the butcher though. If he's merely ignorant, a
little education will help. If he's stupid, I'm afraid it's terminal.
to the ballbat theory, there is no known cure.
