WTF? This kid is just trying to make a buck
CNN.com reports that Oregan health inspectors shut down a kid's lemonade stand because she didn't have a food handlers license. Now, many kids try lemonade stands, and they are just as American as apple pie and butterscotch schnapps. They certainly shouldn't be subject to health inspections. Health inspectors have a lot of power; they can issue costly summonses, shut down restaurants, and damage a business's reputation. If an inspector doesn't have enough common sense to understand the difference between the spirit and letter of the law, perhaps he doesn't have enough sense to wield such power. Idiots should not be allowed to write tickets. Fire this fool.
