Message of the Day – Urinals

These are not ordinary urinals.

They are urinals with a view.

First, the ones you might have seen in Sunday’s Chicago Sun-Times in Zay N. Smith’s


They are at the headquarters (pun probably intended) of Frankfurt’s Commerzbank.

Smith starts his cut line with “Loo with a view.”

Second up are urinals closer to home.

About half of the patrons of Port Edward know what’s below this and another porthole on the north side of the building right off the parking spaces near the river.

Port Edward is the excellent restaurant at the intersection of Algonquin Road (Route 62) and Harrison Street, just west of the Fox River.

And why are there relieved men’s faces looking out across the parking lot at the Fox River?

Think any women ever wonder why?

It’s the pause that refreshes.

In perhaps related news, McHenry County Board members are poised to relieve themselves on me in public at their board meeting tonight at 7 by banning flash photography and all cameras to the back two corners of the room where no decent pictures can be taken without a $3-5,000 camera with a huge lens. (Come to Woodstock at 6 if you want to hear how much overbudget the new Crystal Lake Animal Control Facility is.)
