Minneapolis’s New Tourist Attraction


From a small item in the Washington Post today: Hundreds of people passing through the Minneapolis airport are making time for a pit stop at the now-famous “Larry Craig Bathroom.”

“People have been going inside, taking pictures of the stall, taking pictures outside the bathroom door — man, it’s been crazy,” said Gee Butler, who shines shoes at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
