Bruno: loved your analysis but I think that it goes further. Some people are a commanding presence when they enter a room...something about their appearance and demeanor that makes a real statement without their having said a word...either you've got it or you don't. Well, the DELTA QUEEN's got it in spades! Her shape and physical condition (which I freely admit is a reflection of crew care) tell you something. And, if the caliope doesn't get your feet to movin' that way, the whistle will raise the hair on the back of your neck and arrest your progress where ever you are. This from a guy who's never been exposed to the DQ crew or been on her under way...but hopes to have a chance some day! Cap'n Walnut
