Yesterday as I was walking back to my office from a hearing, I saw a mother teaching her young son how to urinate on a tree …  right there in broad daylight, by a small tree,  on the painstakingly landscaped, very well-manicured lawns of OUR NATION’S CAPITOL.

The young chap had his pants down around his ankles and his mom/guardian was standing behind him, giving him some sort of instructions. The poor guy was totally exposed — she didn’t choose an area with bushes around it or anything,  and they were just steps off a public walkway.

I assume this must have seemed like the only solution in a moment of great distress for the wee lad.

But perhaps it was some sort of public protest. Piss off, government!
