The English are justifiably pissed off about public urination, but this idea smacks of desperation.  

Speaking of malodorous urine, I took a leak at Nordstrom in the Short Hills Mall this week. (In the men’s room, thank you very much.) The brand-new waterless urinals stank. This particular green inspiration leaves a lot to be desired. And it only impacts men: isn’t that sexual discrimination? Just askin’ . . .
