The Best Ideas Are Always the Obvious Ones

We've all experienced the annoying problem of people hacking and coughing during plays and concerts. Usually it's contagious. Someone coughs, then others start to feel the tickle, and before long ...

On my last night in Australia, I went to see The Magic Flute at the fabulous Opera House in Sydney. While waiting to go in for the performance, I notice large wooden bowls placed on more than a dozen tables throughout the entire lobby area. In the bowls, there for the taking by anyone, were cough drops!

Smart, those Aussies, eh?
