Senator Craig - a lesson in Internet using / cruising he (and others in the closet) need to learn

Cruising for Sex, is a website that provides men (women don't figure in this curious activity it seems) who have anonymous sex in bathrooms and other public places with a remarkably detailed guide to locations worldwide to find others of like disposition.

Users update with notes on sites including a Heads Up ! allowing a poster to advise that there is an alert involving police action or a report of a homophobic bashing at this location.

This is kept up to date by users / cruisers to alert anyone where the action is if they want to "hook up". It has a lengthy list of entries devoted to the bathrooms at the Minneapolis airport since early 2006.

An anonymous Heads Up! posted in June, around the time of Senator Craig's brush with the law , warns those who plan to cruise the airport toilets: Twenty people were arrested within the past week. Plainclothes officers wait in the stalls and tap their feet and even put their foot on yours and then arrest you when you look under the stall wall. This is a very homophobic group.

A comment has been addded today :

"Now officially known as the Senator Larry Craig Memorial T-Room after his arrest here in June. Now if he had just read all the reports of busts here on CFS he might have avoided all of this!" Heads Up!

Bob Allen might well have looked for the Heads Up! in Titusville FL. before he offered to suck an undercover officers cock.

A truly International site the latest hot spot is apparently in Shanghai -

Vista M Club (Comment added August, 2007)

New as of April 2007, with two floors and many special promotions for reduced-fee entry. Showers, sauna, jacuzzi, big dark steamroom, one bright maze, one dark maze, a lot of cabins, a dark coffee area, TV room and a small gym. It’s attracting a young and professional local crowd and expats living in Shanghai. Y69 on weekdays and Y70 on weekends and holiday. Excellent maps and directions on website. .. Apparently you should watch out for the young guys with tattoos.

Where Senator Craig evidently went wrong is not having a word with fellow Republican and Chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee (!), Sen. Ted Stevens of Alaska who could have told him about the Internet(s)... as he explained to his own committee why he had voted against an amendment in the Telecommunications Bill they were considering ...."They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.

It's a series of tubes.

Al Gore who invented the Internet and probably didn't realise what the effects of widespread information dissemination would have ...for all sorts of purposes ... he evidently hadn't been as successful as Ted Stevens in explaining what benefits it offers to users.
