This has haunted me, for forty years. A neighbor of ours went down on that ship.
Later, I was annoyed of the blithe triviality that the Gordon Lighfoot dirge offered.
But here we are...forty years later.
I grew up on one area where several Fitzgerald sailors came from. Later I lived in Fairport Harbor, Ohio; another home to more of them.
Later, I lived in Superior, Wisconsin - where the ugly drama acted out.
