Lack of perspective deplorable by grassroothawaii

What a thoughtless perspective displayed in the Honolulu Advertiser lead editorial 3/16/10; “Lack of inspections downright nauseating”. The writer deplores that there are nine inspectors for 9,000 food establishments. In fact it is termed “lunacy”.

I think it is downright silly to assume that all government inspectors are competent and that all operators of 9,000 restaurants are somehow inept or careless. Please note that there have been no major problems for 20 years as the inspector ranks thinned from 23 t0 9. Where is the celebration and congratulations to the restaurant operators for a great job? And it is a great job— obviously.

Based on fact and current circumstances, why not take a fresh look at the situation and find a cooperative way for government to work with the Hawaii Restaurant Association to get the safety and health job done. That should produce a win-win-win result along with responsibility and accountability well assigned. The public deserves no less.
