City Paper is not for tourists
This afternoon, I posted about possibility that parts of the National Mall will have to be restored due to millions of people trampling its grass on inauguration day. Well, I went down to the Mall this afternoon. More than two days after Obama‘s swearing in, the portable toilets are still on the Mall. Hundreds of them! And it’s hot out today.
These portable toilets have been there for a while. They were put up days before Tuesday’s inaugural ceremonies. I wonder if they’ve been cleaned out. They are certainly still available for use. So when will the Mall start to take on an overwhelming poop smell?
