"Back to basics, Dr. Frieden"

While the NYC Health Commissioner was squandering the city's credibility on trans fats ("totally replaceable", you betcha) and hatching Big Brother schemes for diabetic-watching, the traditional and basic functions of his office, like keeping rats out of restaurants, were going untended, notes an editorial in the Post. "The Taco Bell in question had received a, you should pardon the expression, clean bill of health from one of Frieden's restaurant inspectors 24 hours before the rats were taped doing their "Happy Feet" impressions last Thursday morning. ...Of course, if the Taco Bell rats had been smoking, Frieden would have been there to nail the door shut himself." Andrew Stuttaford at NRO thinks it's long past time for Frieden to go.
