Ship will be christened Saturday

  On Saturday, Texas businessman and former   presidential candidate H. Ross Perot will deliver the principal address  at the christening of Northrop Grumman's 28th Aegis guided missile   destroyer William P. Lawrence (DDG 110) in Pascagoula.
  The ceremony   will begin at 10 a.m. and will culminate with the breaking of a bottle   across the ship's bow by three ship sponsors: Diane Wilcox Lawrence,   widow of the ship's namesake and her two daughters, Laurie Macpherson   Lawrence, M.D., and U.S. Navy (Ret.) Capt. Wendy B. Lawrence.
  DDG 110 honors the late Vice Adm. William P. Lawrence, who   spent nearly six years as a prisoner of war (POW) in North Vietnam. He   later served as superintendent of the Naval Academy.
