hard to believe, but apparently true.... I guess this is one of those 'unintended consequences' of information infrastructure...
US Navy to alter "Swastika" building due to web maps
"Your tax dollars at work: The US Navy will be spending about $600,000 to redesign or camouflage a 1960s barracks building in San Diego because of complaints that it looks like a swastika when viewed from the air. In the past this might have been a problem only for the occasional air traveler who happened over Coronado island, but with the advent of aerial mapping and visualization tools like Google Earth, everyone can see anything from the sky."
