(This is partly tongue in cheek, partly serious!)
Who would have thought, prior to Sept 11, that one would have to be so careful with "fanning powder."
I remember when I used to work 5 nites a week at a restaurant. Sometimes, through handling, my cards would get a little sweaty and sticky. I was going through 3 decks a nite, so longetivity was an issue. (This is tropical Queensland, sticky cards ARE a problem!)
On a break I would sometimes duck into the restroom, and using a large plastic bag, powder the cards. Occasionally, a little would be spilled. A thin film of "soapy feeling" powder would be left as a residue - sometimes.
Today, this sort of thing could cause a major panic. It could shut down a chain of Dennys in fear of anthrax. Or a lot worse!
So, be careful with that zinc stearate.
This prompts the question...
What other considerations should we be taking in this new fear-tinged environment?

How else have you been affected? And, what, if any, special considerations are you making so as to ensure "sensitivity" and relevance.
