D.C. restaurants to get letter grades?

By Associated Press

Restaurants in Washington would be required to post letter grades from a health inspection under a bill proposed by a member of the D.C. Council.

Under Council member Mary Cheh's bill, restaurants in Washington would be inspected and graded either A, B, C or F by the Department of Health. The restaurant would then have to display its letter grade.

If the bill passes, Washington would join cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco and St. Louis that require restaurants to display a health card. Cheh has introduced the same legislation before, but it was voted down.

What a waste of valuable resources. How to manage and implement such protocols?! Besides, who would want to dine a restaurant given a 'C' rating (not knowing that they might be just a few points from that 'B')?

Yeah, what a waste. Heck if I'd eat at any restaurant not given an A. If you're not an A, you fail. Here's an idea, how about we give the DC council a letter grade on how well they're doing and if that get anything lower then a C, they have to resign or pay a hefty penalty fee, like $100K.

So, if I open a diner and call it "The Worst Diner" ... will an 'F' make it more popular?
