    The bunker where President John F. Kennedy would have been whisked if World War III erupted while he vacationed in Florida may face a bigger threat than Soviet missiles ever posed: a battle between its operators and the Port of Palm Beach.

    The once top-secret fallout shelter, code name "Hotel," and the retired Coast Guard station on Peanut Island are now a tourist attraction and the focal point of a long-running legal war between the port, which owns the island, and Palm Beach Maritime Museum, which leases the attraction.

    The site's $200,000 annual maintenance budget is barely covered by admissions and donations, he said. The maritime museum's lease ($100 a year, plus 4 percent of gross sales) ends next year.

    He says the port wants to tear down the facility, citing communications he says the museum has had with the commission.

    Your telling me Kennedy would have had to shit in a trashcan worst yet where the hell was Marilyn Monroe going to take a crap. There ain't no fucking way the President is going into that fallout shelter without bringing some poon along.

    From what I read, it wasn't his Presidential shelter, it was the shelter built when he went on vacation in Florida one time.
