The Holy City of holding it: Public bathroom shortage still a problem in Charleston (updated)

Update May 30: The Post and Courier has followed up with another article in this series with additional thoughts from Mayor Joe Riley on the issue ... nothing terribly new, but interesting if it's an issue that bugs you.

Here's a link.

First reporting: If you don't notice many signs for public lavatories when checking out Charleston's many historic churches, it's no surprise as there just aren't many.

The Charleston City Paper wrote their expose on the issue a year-and-a-half ago and today The Post and Courier has followed with their own. And while the city has since added a couple of spots in the interim, there's still no public spot south of Broad Street.

Take a read of The Post and Courier's over here.

Update May 17: Looks like The Post and Courier has added a map of Charleston's public bathrooms to the post, nice.
