    Hmm, perhaps a hangar door. It is at an Air Force Base, and Building 5112 shows to be an aircraft hangar. At $250-400 average for a plain jane 6-panel steel residential 36"x80" exterior door, I could easily see a $1.5million repair bill for something slightly larger.

    I figured it had to be a bank vault type or submarine's screen door.

    So you too have noticed the increased price in commercially available screen doors?

    looks like the door was $246,100.

    The $1,198,000 looks to be for replacing gas mains.

    So its still a cheap door.

    I think I heard Hannity say it wasn't a bad deal. It's only twice the price of Food Lion's normal price. Not bad for government work.


    Didn't listen to the whole thing, Hannity is too much of a little girl. 10 seconds is my limit.

    If they are paying 1.2 million dollars for 2 pounds of ham I have some rolls I need to sell them.

    Hate to bust your rant....<G>, but it's a contract for 2-lb hams. Not a PO for a single ham.

    Thats what I heard, that is not what the PO says. I understand that they are doing most of the PO's like that, my thought was it's easier for them to explain the few that get brought to there attention. I call BS and I amazed that people would except this garbage for an excuse.
    Because the government couldn't really take the time to make a receipt that would include what they are really buying?
