Just Like the Senator, Larry Craig’s Restroom No Longer Popular

“The men’s room at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport where Republican Sen. Larry Craig was arrested in a sex sting is losing it appeal as a tourist stop, an official said.

“We’re getting there,” said Patrick Hogan, director of public affairs for the Metropolitan Airports Commission. “I think we’ll all be glad when there’s no special interest in that restroom.” One person had offered to buy the restroom stall for $5,000, Hogan said, but airport officials “don’t sell fixtures for novelty purposes.” Though tourist interest has withered, the surge of publicity from Craig’s arrest helped end the type of activity in the restroom that had prompted lewd-conduct complaints, he said.”[AP]

    Good! Tea rooms (as well as cruise parks, etc.) are last-age relics of queer repression that have no place in our future. Let the conservative megachurches and halls of Congress keep them if they wish.

    Amen. Who the hell wants to have sex with even the handsomest stranger in a public bathroom when the geezer in the next stall might be farting out the previous evening’s sauerkraut and kielbasa?

    troom trade has nothing to do with repression get over it sex has happened in public restrooms as long as theyve been in existence the practice of troom sex exists frum ancient times & also involves heterosexual sex not to mention the wonderful interchange dare i say dialogue between str8 & gay men which rarely occurs outside of public restrooms i like troom trade & its rather apparent to me that it still continues i think the reason traffic has dropped of in the larry craig honorary troom is because men feel theyre being watched frankly i wouldnt want my name mentioned in the same sex scandal involving mr. craig its too too icky to contemplate
