    Yes, this would be a terrible tragedy for the Olympia to be broken up. We should be ashamed as a nation to let that happen. The Olympia is probably the most

      should be ashamed as a nation to let that happen. The Olympia is probably
      the most rare naval relic we have.
      I'm going to the web site today and make a contribution.

      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...
