    I read something under the heading of strange facts. It said that the Pentagon (as huge as it is) has twice the number of bathrooms that are needed. Reason being that it was built before racial segregation. I think this is another example of military spending being out of control. ha ha ha

    President Roosevelt had made an order ending such racial discrimination in the U.S. military in June 1941. When the President visited the Pentagon before its dedication, he questioned Groves regarding the number of washrooms and ordered him to remove the “Whites Only” signs. Until 1965 the Pentagon was the only building in Virginia where segregation laws were not enforced. (wikipedia)

    Yeah it is a good thing they have these; they must have huge coffee machines for their brew and daily hangout to talk about their pensions; so a lot of toilets are needed for these useless tax spenders. At the coffee machine they invent new ways to spent our money "to keep America safe" Do not let me laugh.
