What makes an economist?

When you read about a shortage of women's restrooms, your first thought is whether there is some way of charging for usage.

As it stands, Congress is preparing a bill to regulate the ratio of men's to women's rooms in federal facilities.  I would think the theatre and symphony orchestra is where reform is needed, not at the Treasury Department.  Men might benefit too ("husband leaving" and "wife leaving" are often complements) and I wonder why Tiebout competition has not enforced better outcomes.
