Happy motoring,

Warren

'History' isn't a required subject anymore in our schools. Should we realize something? Anything?

Doug, TTTHHHHHT!
Yeah, that is what I wrote, isn't it??
One of the main flaws with all the Titanic movies is the lighted funnels. Wasn't done back then.
Steve, That's what I recall too, "Uncle Walt" was the moderator. (Not, not Disney, that was the other Uncle Walt.)

I always liked "Industry On Parade", narrated by Lowell Thomas. Learned a lot from that show in the mid fifties. Dave
