As for the Portland Loos they aren't only for the homeless...how about the tourists...especially those from England and Europe who are used to having public facilitiees?

"Councilman Scott Sherman questioned whether "more government" would really facilitate any progress." Sherman's comment is quite laughable in light of a budget hearing on the Ethic's Commission when it was suggested it wasn't needed and that it didn't exist before former Mayor Murphy. Its role was performed by the Grand Jury and the training program could be done online. It's name is really a misnomer as it only examines campaign contributions and lobbyists. Eliminating it would save the city over $1 million a year. Sherman's response was that he was able to find out that he should pay for his own meals by merely calling the Ethics commission.

Ms Halberstadt, you are not very subtle . You even worked Washington D.C. into your first few sentences covering Filner's San Diego. I'm surprised you didn't get marijuana up higher in the story.
