A Regulation in Search of a Problem

This is old, but still worthy of a post: Writing in the NY Times, Christopher Elliot brings our attention to the fact that there is currently no federal requirement for restrooms on planes:

A functioning toilet is such a basic necessity that the law appears to take it for granted. Perhaps it shouldn't.

Of course, airlines don't exploit this regulatory lapse.

Oh, right. So remind me again why we need a law?
