Ugggh, the press!
The paper shouldn't have made an assumption as to who/what it was that caused it. It's obvious the common denominator IS the barbeque competition, but, to point the finger....it's too early in their investigation for them to come to any type of conclusion, so, I guess the paper decided they should do some "investigative reporting".
I know Jim Stancil, BareKnuckles BBQ, and he's one of the good guys. I'm sure this press isn't going to help his catering and it's a shame that the paper did that before the Health Department finished their investigation.
I hope all the folks recover quickly....
