When suppertime came, the old cook came on deck, sayin "Fellas, it's too rough to feed ya."
At 7 PM, a main hatchway caved in, he said "Fellas, it's been good to know ya."

that song always makes me cry
That happened the same day as this
? Oh my.
They play that song on this day on all the radio stations in Houghton, MI. Also, for MTU Winter Carnival, it doesn't matter what the theme is, someone builds a Edmund Fitzgerald out of snow.
And the cook's just so laconic about it. If anything, he seems more perturbed by the fact that dinner was a wash than by the fact that the ship's going down.
In Minnesota, they are obsessed with this.
3 hurs of MPR's Midmorning, and a special news section in le paper.
