Writer's Block: Home sweet hometown

What do you like best about your city or hometown? What do you want to change?
What I like best about Portland: It's cool to be weird, here. What I want to change: I really hate this stupid rule that says you can't use public restrooms at stores and restaurants without purchasing something. It's a stupid rule that was put in place solely to piss on the homeless people.

Is it an ordinance or just policy?

Alas, the stores aren't doing it just to be mean. They do it because of what some people (homeless or not) *do* to (and in) restrooms.

Everything from shoot up (and leave needles laying around) to use them as "bath" rooms, to leave incredible messes.

All of which make *customers* decide they don't want to use the business and (and, often cause large extra costs for cleaning and for having to inspect far more often (which takes employee time away from other things).

Some of those are the same reason restrooms in parks are closed or only open limited hours.
