After The Rats: Overreaction?
March 6th, 2007
Following up on its previous editorial that
mocked and criticized Health Commissioner Thomas Frieden, the New York Post, in a new editorial entitled “Frieden’s Follies”, argues that the health department is shutting down restaurants “left and right” (though it just mentions John’s Pizzeria in the Village) as reaction to the endlessly repeated video of rats at the Village Taco Bell, which were discovered right after that restaurant got the O.K. from one of the department’s inspectors. “Fact is, there isn’t a restaurant in New York City – hell, in the world – that could stand up to a rule-book inspection conducted by someone with an embarrassed and angry boss.”
