Eye in the sky

I was futzing around today with Google Maps, and decided to check if I could find my old ship with the satellite imaging feature. And, two minutes later, there it was, the USS Iowa, near Benicia, California in the ghost fleet.

The Iowa Veterans Association is trying to get it transferred to San Francisco as a museum, but some politician snuck a rider into the DOD budget that moves it to Stockton, California instead. I guess it was some economic development thing, but considering how much work has been done already to move her to SF, this seems like another piece of partisan bullshit (SF being Democrat country and all).
