Beijing hopes World Toilet Summit cleans up its lavatories | CP: "BEIJING (AP) - Beijing hopes the smelly reputation of its public restrooms will be, well, flushed down the toilet soon.
City officials will use the 2004 World Toilet Summit, starting Nov. 17, to showcase efforts to transform the capital's lavatories from foul to fragrant, from crude to cultured. 'Toilets represent the level of development of a country, a region,' Yu Debin, deputy director of Beijing's Municipal Bureau of Tourism, said Friday at a news conference. 'They also represent a region's spiritual and material civilization.' "
