Main Street: Innovation ideas are all around us by Don Daake and Edward Piatt

Have you noticed in the last few years many hotels have installed a new style of shower curtain? About three-fourths the way up there is a "see out window," that still gives privacy but allows you to keep an eye on any would-be visitors. Do you realize Norman Bates (the nefarious villain in Alfred Hitchcock's chilling movie "Psycho") may have been the inspiration for this brilliant innovation in shower curtains? Anyone who has ever seen the movie would agree Janet Leigh may have survived ole Norman had this innovation been in place in 1960?
