In Which I Get Taken to the Woodshed

A few days ago, I posted on the "toilet paper" bill sponsored by Victor Crist (R-Tampa). Alas, I should know better than to believe the media. Today, I find this rather pointed comment which I offer for your perusal and which provides a different view of the proposed bill. I'll publish it here so as to catch readers of the original post:

Your comments regarding Florida State Senator Victor Crist’s legislation dealing with restaurant restrooms is misleading and inaccurate. If you would have verified your facts, you would have found the bill actually deals with restaurant restrooms and is a whole lot more than just toilet paper. In fact what it really does is expand Florida’s inspections of restaurant kitchens to include restrooms. The bill ensures that restaurant food preparation staff has the necessary means to be clean in order to prevent the spread of disease in food preparation areas. The bill simply requires restaurants to have rest rooms that function. That means running water at the sink, antibacterial soap, a means to dry your hands, toilets that function, and of course toilet paper. The basics needed to ensure the prevention of harmful bacteria that can be easily transmitted to food during preparation after using the restroom.

I do hope that the members of the MSM where I got the original story received a similar message. Anon.
