Flush with success

Flush with success

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has challenged inventors to reinvent the toilet for the billions of people in the developing world who don't have access to modern sanitation.

The most promising designs will be subjected to the ultimate harsh field test for any public toilet: University Way NE (aka "The Ave") and the Pioneer Square area.

The crash test dummy wore white shoes: Most midsize luxury cars fared poorly on crash tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

This is terrible news for the economy -- we need our job creators to emerge safe and sound when their Mercedes-Benz C-Class strikes a telephone pole at 40 mph on the way home from the yacht club.

iBigot: Apple has been urged to remove from its app store an iPhone version of "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion," a notorious anti-Semitic tract.

As of presstime, Apple officials had not responded to media inquiries about the situation. The Buzz guesses they must be trying to figure out how a bunch of anti-Semitic mouth-breathers managed to create an app.
