To Eat or Not To Eat. That is the question . . about cheese rind.

I love the rind on many cheeses. But I also have that prissy American paranoia about sanitation. In France the cheesemongers handle cheese, money, itchy noses, etc., all with the same hands and without washing in between.

In general, I just make believe I never saw anything and eat the rind. But, seriously, what do others think about this?
