Arlington Wins Prestigious…Spittoon?!

Arlington County has won the Travelling Spittoon award for their work with communicable diseases.

Okay, that’s great, but can someone please, for the love of all things good and crunchy in milk, tell me why they decided to make the award a Spittoon?!

    I think, back in the day, that placing a spittoon in a room was considered a public health measure– you could spit in the spittoon, rather than on the floor– or on the walls, or whatever.
