Amy Klobuchar talks about Senate’s historic ‘bathroom’ moment
At the Washington Ideas Forum Wednesday in the Newseum, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) spoke about a historic moment earlier in the day.
“For the first time, there was a traffic jam in the Senate women’s bathroom,” she said. “There were five of us in there, and there are only two stalls.”

1. LIBERATE THE MEN's ROOM!!!
A fine activity in which I have participated many times at concerts, plays, and running events - as the last one out of the men's and there is no line, offer the facility to the group of the waiting women. Stand at the door and as long as no male users arrive, it's open. When a guy or two shows up, have them wait for the last lady to exit.
Certainly there is at least one courteous male in each of the Senate and House...no?
