Bureaucracy Run Amok

Someone posted photographs on Facebook today of a newly remodeled locker room for a college basketball team. It's a small NCAA Division 1 program that has made a couple of appearances in the tournament over the years. The school has about 10,000-12,000 students. A reasonable size school. I offer all of this by way of perspective.

The newly finished locker room has an ADA compliant shower stall as well as an ADA compliant bathroom stall.

Let that sink in.

Do you need a moment more?

See my confusion?

In what universe does it make sense to spend money on facilities to accommodate people who will never use those facilities? That's like putting a wet bar in a Baptist fellowship hall.

OK, maybe that's not the best analogy, but you get the idea.

Sometimes rules need to be applied with common sense. This time that's definitely not the case.
