An article today in my Phoenix-area newspaper lists the results of a recent survey of local restaurants by health inspectors.

In the area I’ve circled, you’ll see that they “explain” what the grades mean. I’d argue that A and B, for example, are self-explanatory, but I suppose they are just being thorough. Fair enough. But look at how they explain the only grade here that is not at all self-explanatory, “NP.”

Oh, now I understand: NP stands for NP. Thanks, editorial team, for cutting through the haze.
