ARIES: Your health continues to decline as your skin becomes too sensitive to endure sunlight and your soul remains too sensitive to endure dark, smoky bars.
MAHMOUDIYA, IRAQAs the tumultuous process of reconstruction continues throughout Iraq, health-care workers are still lacking the basic necessities. "Before anything else at all, we need a supply of new, bilingual 'Employees Must Wash Hands' signs," said Youssef Al-Obaidi, director of Mahmoudiya Hospital. "We appreciate the bedding, laundry-sanitization equipment, window glass, penicillin, needles, wall-repair materials, and so on, but without clean hands, none of these mean anything." Al-Obaidi said the importance of hand-washing could not, unlike doctors and nurses, be overstressed.
