Mourners at the funeral of Anna Bochinsky in Moinesti, Rumania, were 
naturally somewhat taken aback when she abruptly leapt from her coffin
as it was being carried to the grave. Before they could react to this 
unexpected outburst, the woman bounded into the nearest road, where she 
was run over and killed by a passing car.


Seen in a Maine restaurant: 

     "Open 7 days a week and weekends." 


Tuesday's 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."
