A couple of war museums came in for free publicity. ABC's Dean Reynolds toured the newly-opened National WWI Museum at the Liberty Memorial in Kansas City: its exhibit makes you "feel the confines of the trenches." Meanwhile NBC's Brian Williams visited the just-closed USS Intrepid museum in New York Harbor. The aircraft carrier was supposed to be towed off to New Jersey for renovation but stuck in 24 years of accumulated mud. The Army Corps of Engineers promised that the ship can now move after dredging round its propellers, much to the anchor's delight: "General, that's terrific."
Given Williams' bitter experience with the Corps' failures in New Orleans, it was surprising that he was so eager to accept the guarantee.
