Tooting my own horn a little
by Larry Geller
A new law signed by Gov. Linda Lingle will help the state's beleaguered food safety inspection program.
The measure, HB 2688, allows money in a state environmental health education fund to be used for sanitation programs and activities, including monitoring Hawaii’s restaurants and food establishments.
The reliability of the state's food safety inspections came under scrutiny last year after an online video showed rats crawling out from under tarps and over produce at a Chinatown market. [CNBC (AP), Lingle OKs bill expanding food safety inspections, 6/25/2010]
The news doesn’t usually say where that rat video came from any more, but you know, and I know.
And thanks to George Fox who invited me to come by and shoot the video.
Aloha from Waikiki
Unfortunately Ron Mizutani at Ch 2 demoted you last night in mentioning where the video came from, saying it came "from a viewer".
Fame is fleeting, eh?
