Colbert flushing out new visitors to National Gallery

From the embattled L.A. Times (see posts below) something on a lighter note: "The line outside the bathroom at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. has been out the door ever since museum officials decided to hang a portrait of late-night host Stephen Colbert in between the men's and women's restrooms. 'The lines have been extraordinary,' museum director Marc Pachter said today as he prepared to end his 33-year tenure with the Smithsonian Institution. 'A friend e-mailed that it was good I was leaving with my dignity.'"

Colbert has advised: "All employees must wash hands before returning to work."
