It's worse than the funding for the Olympia just drying up. Some swindler,
or maybe it was swindlers, got into the organization taking care of the
Olympia and embezzled most of the funds!! <sigh> Losing the Olympia would
be a much greater historical tragedy than scrapping the New Jersey, since
we've got three other Iowa class battleships...
