setting for ship
'Bayonne, battleship: Imperfect together,' (column, 6/22).
I agree with what Kim Mulford wrote 100 percent.
I also agree with another reader, my former co-worker and a World
War II Navy veteran, Andrew Jannett of Cherry Hill, whose letter
appeared several weeks ago ('Berth at birthplace' 5/3).
It is difficult for me to visualize such a
majestic, historic ship in the setting shown and described in
the column. The USS New Jersey does belong in the Camden/South
Jersey area! As for New Yorkers and New York tourists, I doubt
very much if the USS New Jersey would appear in its commercials,
tour guides or attraction brochures.
At least Mulford knew about and got to see
what is referred to as 'The Garden State.' Just think what you
would have encountered as you searched for Bayonne from New York.
The C-P might consider another trip and follow-up column entitled,
'Bayonne, battleship: Imperfect together II,' as experienced
from New York.
Let's keep battling for the battleship.
