Toilet Crisis in China

SHANGHAI, China -- From May 8 to 10, Shanghai will play host to the World Toilet Expo. China is looking for new ideas in the world of public sanitation in time for the 2008 Summer Olympics to be held in Beijing. Finding a public restroom in Beijing is a perennial problem for tourists and taxi cab drivers alike. Those that do exist are often nothing more than a "squatting pit" without running water or hand-washing facilities. "Toilets here in China velly bad", said one cabbie. "No good... Velly smerry!"

The Chinese, who recently launched an astronaut into orbit, are about to take on a much more daunting task... personal hygiene. Good Luck Beijing... we wish you great success.

I think Mike C. should go to this expo and get the latest...maybe he can find something which will end the long argument between Sal and Michelle about what toilet Sal is allowed to use in B'burg
