So there's a teensy scare about a new strain of flu, originating in Mexico and spreading, as diseases do, to other areas.

What is the primary recommendation? Wash your hands. Posters, flyers, interviews all stress how important it is. Public radio featured a story this morning about how long 20 seconds actually is (the length of time you're supposed to spend scrubbing).

Meanwhile, in the ladies' restroom of the state agency primarily responsible for promoting this method of prevention, it is currently Day Three of No Soap in the Dispenser.

The dark underbelly of the Prevention message is showing.

I am just going to wrap myself in plastic before I leave the house. Like a giant condom.
