As a native New Yorker, my image of New Jersey has always been evoked by these lines from Dinner at Eight, spoken by Wallace Beery to Jean Harlow:

"Listen, you little piece of scum. you ...

I've got a good notion to drop you right back where I picked you up:

In the checkroom of the Hottentot Club...

-- or whatever the dirty joint was.

And then you can go back to that sweet-smelling family of yours...

back of the railroad tracks in Passaic."

The battleship glory days has passed and the few left are museum pieces.

WWII saw the aircraft carrier as the superior ship the US  painfully learned.

 

Funny you mentioning this, ham. You see, while the wife and I were in San Diego (where she grew up) a couple weeks ago to celebrate our 30th anniversary, we did the USS Midway museum tour.

(...for 10 years after it was launched in 1945, it was the largest ship in the world)
