Brickbat: Nail, Meet Hammer


Dimitris Kolyris /

For 25 years. Meanley and Son Hardware in San Diego has had a popcorn machine and offered free popcorn to customers. That tradition has come to an end thanks to a local health inspector, who found the store was serving food without a license. The inspector ordered store owners to get a license to serve food, which would require installing a three-basin sink, or to remove the popcorn machine and stop giving away the popcorn.
