The rainy weather couldn't keep people from heading to the USS Intrepid Sea Air & Space Museum on Saturday. The aircraft carrier-turned-museum reopened this weekend after a two-year refurbishing project. Jim Kiernan took some great photographs--some of his photos are above and his entire Flick set is here.
And the reopening is reason enough for President Bush to stop by tomorrow, which is Veterans Day. Bush will be presented with the 2008 Intrepid Freedom Award, which "recognizes world leaders who embody the ideals of world freedom and democracy. Prior honorees include Presidents Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Clinton, Prime Ministers Yitzhak Rabin, Margaret Thatcher and Silvio Berlusconi and Russian President Boris Yeltsin."
