U.S.S. New York

From the BBC:

Thousands of people have gathered in Louisiana for the christening of a US warship built partly from steel salvaged from the World Trade Center. (1)
A warship. Brilliant idea. Just what we need, and what a nice way to commemerate the dead of September the 11th, 2001, and the shattered families mourning the dead - something intended to create more dead people and leave more shattered families mourning. How bloody stupid. Couldn't they have made a ... a Peacemangel or something out of it, not a bloody war machine?
