"Despite Mr. Reagan's image as the champion of small government, one of the ironies in Washington today is that the biggest federal government building constructed since the Pentagon -- 3.1 million square feet of offices, conventional halls and retail office -- bears the name: The Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center."
-- from a Monday, June 7, Wall Street Journal article
great one! here are two quotes straight from the mouth of the beast to flesh out the irony:
"Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other."
"No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!"
