Wall Street Journal has an article about the Dutch takeover of JFK airport's International Arrivals building. The Dutch have some interesting ideas on how to clean it up:

In Amsterdam, the tile under Schiphol's urinals would pass inspection in an operating room. But nobody notices. What everybody does notice is that each urinal has a fly in it. Look harder, and the fly turns into the black outline of a fly, etched into the porcelain.

"It improves the aim," says Aad Kieboom. "If a man sees a fly, he aims at it." Mr. Kieboom, an economist, directs Schiphol's own building expansion. His staff conducted fly-in-urinal trials and found that etchings reduce spillage by 80%.

"We will put flies in the urinals -- yes," Jan Jansen says in a back office at the Arrivals Building. He is the new Dutch general manager, the boss as of noon today.

"It gives a guy something to think about. That's the perfect example of process control," his New York public relations attendant titters.

"Fine, laugh at me," Mr. Jansen says. "It works."

As one of the relatively few female airline pilots, I've often been mistaken for a flight attendant, ticket agent, or even a snack-bar employee. Occasionally people will see me in uniform and ask if I'm a "real" pilot. Still others congratulate me for making it in a male-dominated field.

One day I was in the restroom before a flight. I was at the sink, brushing my teeth, when a woman walked through the door and looked over at me.

"My sister would be so proud of you!" she remarked.

I figured her sister must be in the airline business, so I smiled and asked why.

Replied the woman, "She's a dentist."

As a law student, I landed a summer job as a law clerk in a prestigious law firm in Charlotte, North Carolina. My duties included investigating personal injury claims arising from automobile accidents.

One day an elderly woman called in from Indian Hill, NC, a small rural town south east of Charlotte. On her way to work, an 18-wheeler plowed into the back of her car. The impact crumpled the back end of her car up past her door, pinning her inside.

Going through my litany of questions, trying to sound as lawyerly and professional as I could, I asked, "Mam, did you give the police a statement?"

"Yes," she answered.

"What statement did you give them mam?" I asked.

"I told 'em, 'git me outta' here!!'"

I was visiting a friend who could not find her cordless phone.

After several minutes of searching, her young daughter said, "You know what they should invent? A phone that stays connected to its base so it never gets lost."
