    Amazing Saga And Allure Of The Titanic

    Ever since I saw "A Night to Remember" on TV in the mid 60s, I have been fascinated by the Titanic and the surrounding lore.  The ironic stories like John Jacob Astor possibly being hit by the collapsing funnel,  the founder of Macy's, Isador Straus and his wife...

    This time last week was the 30th anniversary of

    the discovery of the wreck. I find shipwrecks fascinating in general but something about the Titanic in particular is so riveting. I think it's the "legend" of the sinking that makes it stand out so much. The fact there was a lack of lifeboats for all on board, how the band...

    "a Night To Remember. . . "

    Long before James Cameron's epic, there was the film "A Night to Remember" which was based on the faction novel of the same name. When I was in sixth grade, some 60 years after the sinking, my teacher turned me on to the book. I read it and was facinated, I researched it and was...

    I've always felt this inexplicable connection

    to TITANIC... Yes, I am a history buff, but it goes beyond that. It's so much more than a subject of interest for me. It's a major part of my life. It feels as though my heart went down with the ship and that it remains there to this day. Does anyone else feel this way?

    Would Titanic have steered clear of the iceberg

    if she didn't go into reverse? I believe that this negated the effect of the central propeller on the rudder.

    I regard the Titanic as an object lesson for the world today, particularly the world of finance and banking. Why should the government guarantee banks against collapse due to financial mismanagement? It does not make sense to reward unsustainable business practice. When the bank...
