Favorite Headline - on water repellent toilets

Water-repellent coatings hold promise in planes, cars and toilets

AUSTIN, Texas (Dow Jones/AP) _ Aircraft that won't accumulate ice while awaiting winter takeoff. Engine parts with self-cleaning capabilities to boost efficiency. Even automobiles or toilet bowls that require little to no washing.

All could be commonplace someday if ongoing research proves successful into ``superhydrophobic'' _ or extremely water-repellent _ coatings that are durable enough for metal and ceramics. The idea is that moisture will simply bead up and roll off, picking up dirt particles along the way.

Any time you can work toilets into the headline of a business news story ... that's why Anthony is quite proud of this recast which cleared the news wire.
