The Bay Area Resting Place of the World Famous Battleship U.S.S. Iowa, BB-61

Here it is, in the East Bay, the famous battleship USS Iowa. She went under the Golden Gate Bridge for the last time back in 2001 and now just sits around at a cost of a quarter mil a year. There was talk of the Iowa (and also her sister ship, the USS Missouri) getting berthed in San Francisco as a floating museum, but don’t expect that to happen anytime soon.

Of course Telstar Logistics has been there already, as you can see here.

Any takers?

    Of all the dumb, misguided things the SF Board of Supervisors has done, their decision to confuse the military’s treatment of gays with an honoring of the Bay Area’s proud military tradition is beyond ridiculous.

    And let’s not talk about the likelihood of it being a major source of revenue for The City.

    Seriously, learn to separate the issues, people!
