A bathhouse by any other name -- a truly ridiculous tidbit from the NYPost today:
BLAME THE NAME
THE New York delegation heading to Boston for the Democratic convention next month has a problem. Every state has a welcoming reception the night before the convention starts. The Boston host committee placed the New York party at a waterfront venue called the L Street Bathhouse. Even though it's a perfectly wholesome facility on a beach, sources say, the Empire State Dems don't like the fact that the name evokes the gay bathhouses Mayor Giuliani closed down at the height of the AIDS scare. "The New York delegation is demanding a new location," said our source.
You have GOT to be kidding me! A city that hosts sporting events in Flushing Meadows is going to complain about the name of a local swim club, also known as the Curley Community Center? Puh-lease. NY should be thankful they're not the Texas delegation, which is being put up at the Logan Airport Hilton for the Convention -- enjoy the trip through the closed Sumner Tunnel to get in and out of downtown, cowboys!
