Why is the Patch looking for problems with all of these restaurants? Rather than running around looking for something that you can try to "shock" the public with, why not try to find a positive spin and help these businesses grow. Your "Restaurant Insider Check" articles are not positive. What will you report on when you crush the local businesses with your negative reports and they close? The health department inspects and posts its findings on all of their inspections... let them take care of their business. Find some good and positive news to spread.

Um, they aren't. They are reporting the health department findings. And can you not see that these restaurants have all been compliant? They are reporting grades, problems, and compliance of previous problems. Personally, I want to know the sanitation conditions of any place I eat at. If one of these businesses goes under because of a poor health department grade, THEY DESERVE IT. You must be awfully simple.
