Enough about the Titanic already... Hundreds of ships sink and have sunk.. big ones, tragically... even ships that looked just like the Titanic, like the Lusitania, that made just as big a headline in its day. The Titanic's sister ship Olympia sailed on for twenty years before being retired. The same damn ship.. getting old and creaky.
The media here all aflutter over the Titanic... there are people gathering for "somber"ceremonies in Halifax marking the 100 anniversary... people with no connection to that particular foundering gathering in tears?!?!... Television specials, forensic descriptions of how it broke up.. etc. In 1994 almost a thousand people died in the sinking of the Estonia, no one even knows about it...... thousands of people die every year in ferry sinkings all around the world.... anonymous. Oy.
sorry.. just need to rant.
