Everybody Out of the Pool

In Newton, a clear case of misdirected anger.

I guess after seeing The Aristocrats, I'm finding things like this funny. I'd just been thinking that I'd like to give this blog more of a local feel.

From The Boston Globe, 2005/08/14:

Frustration has grown at a Newton pool over how frequently the swimming facilities have been closed to clean up what state and federal regulators call "fecal accidents".

Why on Earth are they mad at the pool?! Would they prefer the pool staff just kind of turn the other way?

The CDC distributes a poster that says, "Can you read this? Have diarrhea? Don't swim."

Depending on the accident, cleanup can take as little as 30 minutes or as long as a day.

(emphasis added).
