World Toilet Summit Opens

Remarkably, neither George W. Bush or the United States has been blamed for the toilet crisis, though we'll give it time.

After all, the UN is involved in this.
A World Toilet Summit has opened in the Indian capital, Delhi, with more than 40 countries taking part.

The four-day meeting will examine solutions and technologies that can be used to provide a basic need for nearly half the world's population.
Wait until the Democrats get wind of this. They'll probably want to subsidize it and start rationing when you can take a dump.
The UN wants to remedy the situation by 2025.

But the problem is that it is quite expensive for most countries in the developing world to set up western-style toilets and sewage systems.
Western-style? Isn't that imposing our values on others?
