I have it on very good authority that my earlier post about going to Texas was slightly incorrect. It turns out, however, that things are even worse than I had thought.
My confidential informant advises that:
All of the men’s toilets are in Arkansas. The women have to go to the Texas side to do their business. Also, and this is embarrassing in 2013 (but is illustrative of the past), the women’s toilets in the building have urinals plus toilets. We have been told that in 1933-35, when the courthouse was constructed, no one expected women to come to the courthouse or if they did, stay long.
I am speechless.
