Original Starting post for this thread:
The U.S.S. New York was christened on 01 March. Great news there. I just have a few questions though: Why was it named the New York instead of the New York City?

The other ships in the San Antonio Class are named after cities. So Far there is the U.S.S. San Antonio. The next two ships will be the U.S.S. Arlington (for the Pentagon) and the U.S.S. Somerset (for a field where the third plane went down) What gives the State of New York the right to take away from the tragedy that fell on New York City?

Also during the christening the bottle did not break on the first attempt. Does this mean the U.S.S. New York is destined to be a doomed ship?

Three of the worlds most famous ships were "cursed" because of multiple attempts at christening; The Titanic, The Bismarck and the Edmund Fitzgerald. All three were said to be doomed because the champagne bottles bounced off of the bows instead of breaking. At the christening of the Edmund Fitzgerald, the ship sent a huge wave into the crowd while striking the dock and a man died of a heart attack. The Bismarck killed a seaman who lost his footing and fell into the water being trapped between the dock and the ship. A steel worker lost his life during construction of the Titanic by being sealed inside a void. With the San Antonio class ships at least one ship builder died during Katrina. It is unknown if he would have been assigned to the New York.

Are Naval superstitions true?

Either way this is a great day for America and for the families of those who lost their lives due to a cowardly attack on our country.

Didn't quite know where to put this, I guess here is as good a place as any.

There is a video of a soldier in Iraq throwing a puppy. Quite a bit of stuff going on in my local Craigslist about it.

Some prick posted the soldiers name, address, and phone on Craigs. Whatever your feeling on this video or the war in general, this soldier does not deserve have the crazies of Craigslist being told this information.

Please go to your local Craigs and flag this post if it is out there. Let's try to keep this guy safe. If there are any repercussions of his action, the appropriate place is his command, not some Craigslist idiot.

Thanks

Since 9/11 the USN has flown the coolest of all American flags, and decidedly full of Yankee spirit: The Continental Navy Jack. "Don't Tread on Me". At our house we'll either fly that flag or the Bennington flag on Independence Day.

The newest and most advanced aircraft carrier in the Navy -- the George H. W. Bush ... I bet that just grates on the liberal traitors.

Yes Circy the sea whitch is a famous superstition. She is of the premise that when things on a ship get careless, and begin to go down hill she appears and asists with th ships slid.

And another term Loose lips sink ships was formed from when sailor were never told their desination until they were underway so not to devulge it while on liberty.

AVONDALE, La. (AP) Families of Nine-Eleven victims have gathered in Louisiana to christen a Navy war ship partially built with scrap steel from the ruins of the World Trade Center. In christening the assault ship, the USS New York, the Navy is making an exception to its rule of naming only nuclear subMarines after states.

That must be new or new after a particular date??

Not at the same time, at least I do not think so, not active and commissioned.
