Hubris? One hopes not.

Dear Gentle Reader(s), occasionally, in order to help keep myself on an even keel, to remind myself of exactly where I stand in the greater picture, whenever a friend or acquaintance complains about this, that, or the other (movie tickets are up to $6.75!), often I will say something like, "At least I don't live in Baghdad and I'm not an Afghani woman," or "Yes.  And those whiners in Baghdad!  What do they know of suffering?"

Salondotcom offers a new reality slap in the face for all of us:  In Mumbai, slum dwellers "live in areas with 100 public toilets for 45,000 residents."

Ponder that, my Dears.
