Wildberries, perhaps it might be worthwhile to check if the url has been copied in its entirety, and press Refresh as many times as needed if the website is giving you a hard time.

I checked the url and was able to bring the website up just now, and so the url is correct. Here is another quote from the article from bringing up the website just now:

"The county agency also cracks down on unlicensed mobile food carts often operated in Latino neighborhoods by Hispanic entrepreneurs, some undocumented workers and some U.S. citizens, Ludwig said."

(So glad I never bought anything from those small latino food carts.)

Kiru, as to your accusation, it looks like it's just a simple case of misreading posts earlier in this thread (view the bolded words above)

(overall, denotes describing a group, not an indiividual)
And it's racist to say describe a group on the basis of a few individuals. I don't know how you think you have changed my mind. I have not misread anything. You are saying it's ok to fear and target Muslims because of a few terrorists who happen to be Islamic. That's RACIST!

It is totally unacceptable to spread human waste on walls or anywhere else. This poses a significant threat to the health of the American public and should not be tolerated.

I cannot agree. It's not racist.

Boneheaded, narrow minded, and bigoted; yes. Racist, not necessarily.

Default Another thing.

These exact same stories used to go around about the Irish, my ancestors, 150 years ago.

If they did, (which I dont believe), they had reason to, look how they were treated, the illegals today get treated VERY well by the USA.

Yet, it was Taco Bell that made people sick, eh?

I used to buy hot links, for years, from some Middle Eastern guy who had a cart at the Fremont CA BART station. I hope he's still there. One day, he had two health inspectors citing him because he had no running water. I bought my usual hot dog off the guy, and commented, a little less than respectfully, "what are you guys - the Hot Dog Squad?"

I'd way sooner trust a little entepreneur, whatever their ethnicity, than some big Corporation, run by yuppies. They got the feces between their ears.

My husband bought a burrito from one of those latino food trucks at the jobsite, he got food poisoning so bad he had to go to the hospital for dehydration. It was fun!!!

Default Food Poisoning

Had it twice.

First time, it was from a food stand on the Pt. Jeff/Bridgeport ferry. My girlfriend and I both got it, it was from knishes.

The second time was from some Moo Shu Pork I got from a Chinese restaurant that delivered to my apartment in San Fran. They're lucky I lost their take-out menu, because I wanted to go there and put a brick through their window.

It's where you get it. No assurance that food is good, even if it comes from an "official" restaurant that's inspected. Both of those places were.
