Default Str. Mississippi Queen - SOLD !

Greetings From New Orleans !
I have just received an e-mail from a close and reliable friend and some one whom has had his ear very close to the ground that the Str. Mississippi Queen has met her fate !
According to my friend , the Str. Mississippi Queen has been purchased and will be moved and sold for SCRAP ! Her engines and hull will be salvaged but her super structure will be SCRAPED ! The hull will be turned into a barged and no telling at this point will happen to the remains !
What an inglorious end to such a majestic vessed and what a shame that the " Powers That Be " failed miserably to take care of not only this vessel but the entire Delta Queen Steamboat Company has well !
I will report more details has they are sent me !
What A Crying Shame For All Of Us !
Smooth Sailing !
