I just read where the Great Lakes are getting much warmer due to climate change and my first thought was about the Edmund Fitzgerald and wondering if the storms will be even more severe now.

What a terrible way to die.



Mr. Lahey: A lot of people, don’t know how to drink. They drink against the grain of the liquor. And when you drink against the grain of the liquor? You lose.

True, but I would imagine water is a better way to go than fire. According to investigators, their bodies are still well-preserved on the lake bottom.
