SF Dispatch

I just got back from SF and that city is fascinating because it is on the cutting edge of many personal freedoms but it also so Nanny-State. The city recently mandated that every company with more than 20 employees provide health insurance to their workers. This mandate hit restaurants very hard and they have responsded with a 4% charge to diners to cover that cost. It is part of your SF restaurant bill now.

I was hit with that 4% surcharge at every restaurant and applaud it for its honesty and showing the customer how government mandates on small businesses cost customers more.
