From the Insane Files of the ACLU

From a brief introduced yesterday by the ACLU in defense of Sen. Larry Craig, who was arrested in an undercover sting operation for allegedly seeking an intimate sexual encounter in what must be one of the acoustically sound airport restrooms in the world:

"The government cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Senator Craig was inviting the undercover officer to engage in anything other than sexual intimacy that would not have called attention to itself in a closed stall in the public restroom."
Oh ya, I can seriously imagine that those airport stalls are practically soundproof, what with all that thick and luxurious carpet combined with the finely upholstered furniture absorbing whatever sighing blips of whispered passion that might innocently eke out of that makeshift cubical of carnal delights. But, how are we supposed to ignore the intertwined argyle socks and leather wingtips below the divider?

"What you guys doing in there? Twister?"
