  1. AWESOME!!! Common Sense made it's way into the law? amazing.

    1. Best food news I've heard in a long time. No more overcooked burgers!!!!!!!!!

      1. I had heard that this was happening this summer. Something on schedule???!! Amazing. But seriously, that is wonderful news for this still-mooin' burger lover!

        1. Hooray!

          I'm all for public safety, but the burger policy was just beyond ridiculous. We might need to carry copies of the change to back up the legality our burger orders!

          1. On a related note, I had a really good, properly cooked medium burger at G2B in Durham last week. Had a charcoal flavor to it as well.
