America's best restroom: Nominate your favorite

OK, this may not seem directly related to air travel out of PHL, but there is a connection, so hear me out. Travelers have to use public restrooms, naturally so to speak, and chances are you have been in some that would qualfiy as the worst imaginable. But there also are some memorable ones out there, too, restrooms with style and flair, not to mention that they're squeaky clean. In a time when there's a contest for everything, there's one for this category, too, with it's own Web site, lists of past winners (the competition started in 2002) and a place to nominate a public facility you think is outstanding. If this sounds silly, consider those who spend their lives on the road experiencing the best and the worst. Check out America's Best Restroom here.
