Simply Brill!!!


As a travel writer, I spend a lot of time in the air -- and even more time in airports. That, inevitably, means some time in airport bathrooms. Oklahoma City is top of the pot when it comes to clean commodes. Not just the porcelain fixture itself but its surroundings. And part of this, I propose, is thanks to the installation of Brill seat covers. No more trying to paper the seat with little squares or hoping you can land on the seat cover without the papers (or paper) flying off or, even worse, discovering the paper sticks to the seat because of latent moisture! And no more remnants of those paper plasterings left on the floor. A pass of the hand in front of a sensor and a plastic covering slides around the oval. I give Little Rock high marks for using this system also. My only worry -- is it the same piece of plastic just going around and around? Naw, I'm sure it isn't. The Brits have a word for this invention -- brilliant -- or bril for short.

Ron suggested that next time, you can make a mark on the plastic with a Sharpie and then hit the button. If the mark returns from where it started from...those seats ain't clean!
