Isn't this a violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act (Sec. 201(a) ), which outlawed discrimination in public accommodations? Granted, this law specifies "race, color, religion, or national origin" as being the grounds upon which discrimination is excluded, but isn't one of the claims of the Dems in the Blue States that we voted the way we did in the Red States because we're a bunch of religious fanatics?????

Or, is Freeman's a private club where membership is required and this act doesn't apply?

CTA: "We Are Now 73% Urine-Free!"

By: Frank Williams
Chicago Transit Authority President Frank Kreusi announced at a press conference yesterday that the CTA's five-year-old "Project No More Pee Pee" continues to be a success. He released statistics which showed that 2002 is on pace to become the lowest urine-filled for the CTA.

"Thanks to the diligent work of our customer service agents, janitorial staff and members of the Pee Moppers Union, local 314; The CTA is on track to being 73% Urine-free for 2002," Kreusi announced, "Despite the fact that the CTA does not operate any public washrooms, we are seeing a decline in instances where our facilities are 'christened' by the riding public-especially those with very weak bladders."

Project No More Pee Pee began in 1998 after a special report by the Mayor's office concluded that in 1997, 95% of CTA facilities were saturated with urine. The project was an immediate success when the percentage dropped to 45% after just one year. Transit advocates credit that drop to the installation of "Pee Buckets" in the cab of every train and the Transit Workers Union's perk of free "Depends" for its members. CTA officials point to their $4 million advertising campaign entitled, "CTA: Take It, Don't Whiz On It." Last year, the CTA was judged to be 31% urine-soaked (69% urine-free).

Critics of the CTA point out that since last year, several other CTA facilities have been added to the study-including the Transit Workers Union meeting hall, All CTA offices at the Merchandise Mart and Frank Kreusi's personal residence. Chicago Transit Board Chairman Valerie Jarrett dismissed those claims, pointing out that on a same-facilities basis, the urine-free number was actually lower (71%) and that those added facilities were now included due to an oversight in 1997.

Mayor Daley praised the CTA for it's diligence and promised not to cut the City of Chicago's annual $3 million in support of the CTA. That would mean that 2003 will be the 15th straight year that the City of Chicago has funded the CTA with a generous $3 million while CTA fares have increased 50% in the same span.

Well, I'd say this restaurant needs a good Freeping.

Perhaps four solid weeks of people doing nothing but taking up seats and ordering water will teach 'em a lesson.

Freeman's dining area is okay, but have you seen the kitchen?

Now I am even more proud of The University of Oklahoma and University of Nebraska fans that booed Tom Brokaw last Saturday night when it was announced he was at the game! It truly was priceless!

Imagine he can get a table at this restaurant with no problem!

I seriously doubt the entire restaurant cheered, although I wouldn't doubt there might have been a few abnoxiou DUers there.

Some disreputable types could make certain their reservations book was full for the next four years, then not show up for dinner...

If they're waiting until a Democrat wins the White House again, they'll be "full" (of it) for much longer than 4 years.

The restaurant just wants publicity. Why comply?

We could all call and reserve tables for Saturday night...and then not show up.

Or how about we take turns calling and asking them to page Seymour Butts?

Purely out of curiosity, and entirely off topic, is it really true that simply finding cigarette butts in some part of a restaurant in NY is taken to be proof of violating the smoking ban, leading to hefty fines?

I thought I read that somewhere...

The "Massive" SS agents don't ring true.

I say "Close 'em down, close 'em down". There must be
something besides discrimination they are in violation of.
