Howard Fischer gets it right when he properly calls it "Worker's Compensation," but the headline writer blows the opportunity to display accuracy when he refers to it as "Workman's Comp." It has not been called "Workman's Compensation" for at least 25 years! (BTW, the name was changed because some felt the term "workman" was a sexist denunciation of non-males.)

"... poultry is the main attraction, albeit in two distinctive styles."
My guess is that Padilla means distinct instead of "distinctive," because her point is, "... the cooking style itself sets the restaurants apart."4 months ago
"where he’s originally from" is redundant. 4 months ago
"A pair or Tempe restaurants are fighting for the appetite of nearby college students,"
should be 'is fighting,' since "A pair" is singular. And why is it "A pair OR"??
That should be a pair OF. 4 months ago
