IHNJH, IJLS Lea Thompson is an old friend of my Dad's from
when he was the news director at WRC-TV in Washington DC
(ca. 1970); and, for a time, her husband was my attorney.
She's a pioneer in the field of consumer reporting in
broadcast journalism. If she says these clowns are dirty,
I for one believe it.

I can believe it, too. In fact, I've *never* believed that any
restaurant kitchen was 100% in compliance with 'standards'. Nor any
home kitchen. There's a sidebar in this story to view restaurant
inspections in various states. I checked a lot of these when it was a
hot story in local media a few months ago. The problem with regs and
stats of violations is that it's very difficult to tell whether one
restaurant has rodent droppings all over the place and another's
'fridge is 2 degrees off spec. Ex: one local "critical" violation was
"Light bulb in refrigerator not shielded, coated, or otherwise
shatter-resistent." [This was an entirely random pick.]

Remember, this is a 'sweeps' month. "Dirty Dining" is a lot sexier
than "restaurant employees don't wash their hands enough."

It's kind of fun to follow up. A couple of non-critical violations
were "bamboo handle of strainer is not corrosion-resistant,
non-absorbant, and/or smooth," and something about forks and spoons
being stored face-up (possible contamination of the "lip-contact"
surfaces, which doesn't make any sense at all).

If the piece had surveyed fast-food restaurants that had been shut
down for "imminent health hazard" (sewage overflow, no hot water,
fire, pest infestation, disease outbreak, etc.), and one or more
chains were significantly more prone to this than others, it *would*
be useful information.

They're looking at fast food restaurants. But what about the restaurant in
Pittsburgh that's faulted for causing over 500 cases of Hepatitis A?

If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip.

And of course it was not the green onions. It was the virus and nasty
of people not washing their hands and them touching the green onions
that caused the people to get sick.
