Something Political

I was a Political Science major in college, so I still have some interest in politics. Not running for any elected position, mind you, but I do like to keep my eyes on what is happening in Washington. Sadly, I am not so interested in local politics.

Anyway, I have a question about the whole Larry Craig thing. For anyone living under a rock, this is the Senator who was arrested for lewd behavior in an airport bathroom. I am trying to figure out how it is possible to bump the foot of the person next to you when in a bathroom stall. Do men actually sit on the seat in an airport bathroom? Because most women I know squat (those toilet seat covers are just too hard to use), meaning they need both feet to support their weight. I would fall over if I kicked out (or even tapped!) with one foot. Or do we assume that hygiene is not a high priority for someone looking for an encounter in an airport bathroom?

I know, you are thinking that alluding to politics in the opening paragraph was a rude way to lure you into a conversation about bathroom habits. I apologize for any misdirection. Would you rather I talked about the sad state of affairs in the executive branch nowadays (or really for the last 7 years)? Or my concern about the direction of the Democratic Party?

Ah, maybe b/c our esteemed members of Congress are spending so much time in the can that they don't have time to pass a budget for your beleaguered Exec Branch : )

Being in the preggers club these days has meant sitting not squating...anything to keep the bladder on empty. Talk soon, LN
