It may cost nothing but people are plain nasty. The problem is they don't care if they infect others. They just don't.

On a lighter note, Cleveland, just around the hook from Detroit was a very pleasant surprise to me. It is a lovely place with a lot of history. We were just stopping through for a day on a road trip, and I was seriously impressed! Maybe people even wash their hands there?

I never eat out anymore, want to guess why? If you think this stuff happens only in fast food outlets, youre so wrong. It happens in fancy rich ones too.

I have to share a story I've always been ashamed of. When I was a teen, I worked at a really bad fast food place. They worked us like dogs. I had to make this gigantic vat of Chili. We are talking huge backbreaking sized vat. I made that chili one day, and on the rim of the giant vat, was an exceptionally large spider. I have severe arachnophobia and there is no way I was going to swat it or grab it. So I decided I was going to blow it off the rim. As you can imagine, that didn't work out. The spider flew into the cauldron of chili. I stood there for a few minutes, devil on one shoulder, angel on the other. The devil won that day, and mr spider added extra protein to the chili that day. Funny enough, my dad came through my line and he wanted chili and I just looked at him and gave him the little head shake no, and he ordered something else.

San Diego has an emergency hep A outbreak. The CDC has been assisting. They've extended it through the end of the month. Their fear is that flu is going to hit the area.

Hep A is typically oral-fecal transmitted, which as gross as it sounds, is common. Poor sanitary habits and restaurants hiring as cheap as help as they can find leads to a zoo of disease.

There is an Romaine lettuce e coli outbreak happening too (US and Canada).

Make me want to start growing everything myself!

San Diego Union Tribune - As hepatitis A outbreak wanes, county turns focus to the flu.

I urge you to grow your own romaine, you will realize how far removed from real food we are. It doesn't look or taste anything like the stuff in the grocery stores! Real romain has very little white parts, it is mostly deep dark green. It is actually really easy to grow and super cheap.

I usually go to the farmer's market and buy it from the organic grower guy.

It is winter time and they mostly shutdown for the season. They do a mailing list and have limited supply but I can wait.

That Aerogarden thing looks like the way to go. Fresh herbs all year round. It is all computer controlled. The only thing is kind of like Keurig where they also supply "K-cups" for their indoor grower. It is, to me, worth looking into. I just have to hype myself up to lay down the cash.

I do love good romaine! I don't love a good e. coli outbreak! Or Hep A, B, or C!

Hepatitis A is transmitted via blood, feces and sperm.

So, a chef who does not clean his hands, some feces left under the fingernails, he prepares food and voilà.

The nasty thing about Hepatitis A is, that from the moment of infection to the outbreak of the disease it takes about 6 months. So the staff could spread the virus for 6 months without knowing it.


I would say Detroit has a blood, feces and sperm problem. As does Frisco. People got to get it together. Lifestyle choices.

It must be an educational failure. You point out poverty and all sorts of excuses but truth be, it costs nothing to clean your environment and be a vigilant clean cook in a clean kitchen. Unless of course you don't know about these things or you don't believe in them, which is due to lack of education.

It also costs nothing to stay crime free and lead a decent life, even if you are poor. Cleanliness, knowledge and integrity are lacking and everyone in the world is free to use them, unless you don't and end up in a mess.


You've never been to Detroit.

There's just no other place like it.

Poverty breeds crime its just the fact of life. Unless you've seen it, experienced it its like a drug counselor whose never done drugs material.

Same goes for poverty is about the most destructive force on the environment known to man.

Never forget that humans turn into primal savages in just 72 hours without modern creature comforts.

Well, Detroit IS a cesspool, so... Not too shocking.

Don't know about Detroit, but when your city needs to build open air urinals in an attempt to control public urination, that might give you some idea as to how San Francisco came by its problem.

Btw, this article outlines where the infections were located in the food service industry. For anyone who may have patronized Little Caesars or McDs in the Detroit area ... or gambled at a casino ...

Any time you put that many people in a confined space, with limited opportunities to use a facility or wash your hands, this will happen.

During the dark times when I had to live in one of the giant sardine cans, one thing that was always true was businesses won't let you use their facilities and the city governments completely ignore the need for far more public restrooms. In some area's, even driving in a car it's difficult. On one occasion I remember having to fill up my car and pay before they would let me in a bathroom. It was either that or drive on in wet pants on a wet seat. The excuse was that too many addicts were using the restroom and washing up in there.

This can't help but get worse as we crowd together in smaller and smaller spaces.

Give all the city officials a nice dose of laxative, take away their wallets and dump them off in a downtown area where they don't know anyone.
