The S.S. United States

In a 3/10 posting, I mentioned the recent fears regarding the possible fate of the S.S. United States ocean liner (the ship, as noted in previous posts, plays a part in my book). There has been confirmation, unfortunately, that the fears are justified.

As part of its effort to sell the legendary ship (which has been docked, since 1996, on the Philadelphia waterfront), the company that owns it, Norwegian Cruise Line, is now accepting bids from scrap dealers.

Please also see the following link, for information about the S.S. United States Conservancy, and its efforts to preserve the ship:
