I don't get to the forums often, but I saw this and had to comment.
Some time ago I bought a documentary from the History Channel entitled "Battle 360 - USS Enterprise" covering the exploits of CV-6 (or CV(N)-6 as she was later known (after the first night mission off a carrier).
To make a long stroy short.....near the end of the series, in an interview with one of the crew from CV-6, it was mentioned that despite a public/political effort to "buy" CV-6 and make her a museum, Enterprise was sold for scrap. The crewmember, IIRC, expressed mixed emoitions - he was sorry to see her go, but happy that she "died" with a modicum of respect, not turned into a "playground" for a bunch of screaming tourist that probably would never truely appreciate what she had done.
Let the Queen Mary, a pleasure craft, continue to be a pleasure craft as a mesuem...let a warship (especially any that saw active duty and was the last place on earth that some men stood) serve it's purpose (and move on).
Just my 2 cents worth
