Steel from the remains of World Trade Center, I would suppose.

Slightly off the subject, but the web site of the USS NY reminded me:
I went to the Intrepid last week. I hadn't been there in about 4 years. I don't know what I was expecting, but after the multi-year, multi-zillion dollar overhaul, I know I was expecting something more than I got. The exhibits were mostly the same as they were last time. There were a few more restored rooms, crew quarters and the like, but there were far fewer hands-on exhibits. There was a simulator you had to pay for, but not much else. The planes, while always a treat, were pretty much the same as a few years back.
I dunno, the ship is so friggin huge, I was hoping for more of a Smithsonian Air & Space experience.
But don't get me wrong, if you've never been there, it's most definitely worth the trip.

i wonder if the sailors on the USS New York are going to consider it an honor or a jinx.

Let's hope it has better luck than it did there.
God bless her and all who sail in her.

"Lenin called them "useful idiots," those people living in liberal democracies who by giving moral and material support to a totalitarian ideology in effect were braiding the rope that would hang them. Why people who enjoyed freedom and prosperity worked passionately to destroy both is a fascinating question, one still with us today. Now the useful idiots can be found in the chorus of appeasement, reflexive anti-Americanism, and sentimental idealism trying to inhibit the necessary responses to another freedom-hating ideology, radical Islam"

One hopes that after is came out of the mill, it had only a passing resemblance to its original form and properties, so it's more Voodoo than engineering...
