Smells Like Sulfer? UPDATED

That’s not what Chavez actually said.

DIH has the scoop.

And I think the interpreter ought to be canned. That is a very different change in meaning and intent, and she failed to accurately and faithfully render the message being given. When I was interpreting, that was bad enough that my certification could be revoked.

UPDATE: Please check the com boxes at DIH. Apparently the original report was not correct. (I was just informed of that, and I hadn’t been following the com boxes over there, so forgive the delay in that.) Someone listening misheard Chavez’s word and reported it incorrectly.
