Bathrooms, Bathrooms, and Blogs

Someone smarter (or more awake) than me might be able to link these two things.

First, MN Observer finally responded to my comment about her charity challenge. My objection was that the money went to an organization that also happened to be lobbying for controversial legislation. It also seemed to be a setup, in that we were not really supposed to donate, just prove that conservatives are heartless. Here is a nugget from the comment:

If you had exercised the curiosity and reading comprehension of the junior high mentality you proudly display, you would have seen in Ms. Stassen-Berger's article that indeed the Executive Director of CCFA was urging the passage of the legislation.

Finally, given that the donation will go to help those who suffer from the disease, I think that the charge of "more interested in the issue than the solution" is best leveled at yourself.

I will let readers decide for themselves whether MN Observer was sincere in reaching out to the right for a charity fundraiser.

Second, in other restroom news, the Minneapolis Star Tribune has an editorial supporting religious footwashing stations at Minneapolis Community and Technical College. No word on whether they will take my suggestion and install a no-slip mat and a stool.

No, you folks were supposed to donate, and I set up a third party - Flash - who was acceptacle to Mr. Bordkorb as the fiscal agent. Mr. Brodkorb assured me that the generosity of his colleagues was so great that the $100 goal would be reached "very quickly."

Flash received not one penny from Mr. Bordkorb's friends, the ones who insisted that they had nothing against Crohn's sufferers.

Stingy is a word that comes to mind.

Nope. It is all about where the money goes. Regardless of who the fiscal agent is, would the donated money go to lobby for the Restroom Access Law or any other controversial measures?
