Business as usual. I don't know why it's a news article.

Its interesting to me for 2 reasons: It is history going away, I realize you cant just keep these things laying around but never the less it is a piece of history. and the second reason is I wonder why they got 3 mil to scrap this one but only 2 cents for the Saratoga?

It costs millions a year to keep it afloat and it hasn't done anything productive in 15 years. I'm sure if you offered to scrap it for 2 cents they'd take your offer.
