Alcohol and cigarettes....the legal drugs that impact our society in a far negative way than all the illegal drugs combined. Such hypocrisy. Downtown Elmhurst. Many bars and restaurants. Many seniors, some with diabetes. Where is a person to go should they have to go to the bathroom? Why does Elmhurst refuse to to place porta-potties that are well designed and discrete? We have car shows, we have children, we seem to pretend that our false "refinement" makes us different and this is not necessary. It also allows for cheap ticketing and perhaps revenue. Those who are passive-aggressive but in leadership positions actually have contempt for others and would never think of doing something positive for others. They might also be lazy and not proactive. ---- on you.

I'm all for porta-potties, if it segways into public sauna's, or bathhouses. That's where business gets done.

Faust, One is a reality, the other is your fantasy possibly. Keep the conversation relevant and on track. Lack of community conversation concerning important issues often amazes and disappoints me. Oh well.
