Global Handwashing Day
Apparently today (Oct 15th) is Global Handwashing Day. Nice idea (I agree that washing hands is a good thing) and it means well. But how effective will this be until there's a "Global Fresh Running Water Day" and "Free Soap and Towels Day"? Franky, the problem is there's not point in washing hands if all you have available is poo-water in the first place. Perhaps fixing the poo-water problem will make the hand-washing issue make more sense?
