It’s been at least a week since we’ve had a good study. Contained in one of the links collecting dust in my Possible Rant folder was the report of a study done by a microbiologist at my alma mater, the University of Arizona. According to this piece of research, a desk in a typical office "may contain 400 times more germs than an office toilet seat". I’d rather not dwell on that conclusion considering that I usually eat lunch at my desk. But before I arrange for an emergency hazmat team to descend on my office, I must remember to look at who’s paying the bills for the research. In this case the sponsor is Clorox. Enough said.
