The nation's first self-cleaning public toilet made its debut Thursday, and Mayor Frank Jordan said the high-tech device won't cost taxpayers a penny. Jordan cut the ribbon on the dark green cubicle that housed what backers envision will be the first of 20 public commodes throughout the city. After dispensing with the expected puns about being "flushed with success" and feeling great "relief," Jordan let the assembled reporters know the event was a serious one.

Surrounded by a bevy of dignitaries, Brown cut a blue-and-gold ribbon and ushered crowds of curious citizens into the elegant Beaux Arts building shortly after noon.
