DISASTER RECOVERY IN BLOOMBERG’S NEW YORK: NYC sends health teams to post-Sandy food handouts, rubbing some wrong way.

“It’s just a little ridiculous. The inspector came up and asked if we were wearing hairnets. I told him, ‘We have helmets. This is a disaster area,’” Eustace told FoxNews.com. “Then he asked is we had gloves and thermometers [for food]. I said, “Yeah, we have rectal and oral. Which one do you want?’ He wasn’t amused.”

Eustace says that the Health Department worker then checked off a list of violations at the relief tent, including not having an HVAC system and fire extinguisher.

Because tents need those. I admire the spirit of mockery this inspired, however. Bloomberg’s New York needs more of that.
