96 Years Today



A massive tragedy at the time. Subject of many, many movies, and now of an investigation of the rivets that may have been too high in iron content that may be added to the whole list of causes. Still Harry Chapin somehow made the whole thing fun. If nothing else, it probably says something about the current political climate.

I've always been fascinated by the investigative programs that dive to the ship. Each new one seemed to be able to show more and more detail.

The shot that always gets me is down the grand staircase.

I'd never heard this before. Is it wrong to be tapping your toes to a song about a ship sinking and so many people dieing?

96 years? WOW...I guess we'll never know the whole story -- one of life's great mysteries.
