YOU MIGHT THINK the the Ivy League grads and other urbane types who use the newsroom men's room at The Washington Post would have an edge in the hygiene department over the general populace, or at least over lavatory users in, say, a bus station.

Think again.

Is it difficult for a lot of people to use a sink without causing a flood? Is there some sexual thrill that I don't know about to leaving your excreta to be viewed (or sat on) by others? It's U.S. Open (tennis) time, so the TVs are seeing more Flushing than the toilets. So much for the idea of subliminal suggestion.

And then there's the germ-phobic guy who manifests his "neatness" by littering for others, leaving a wadded-up piece of paper towel threaded through the interior door handle.
