Thanks to you who knew the "bridge" incident was Madison. Betty Blake, as we all know, was a genius at marketing and using the press to great advantage. In this respect the rule was that Captain Loudon was never to give a live press interview or a print interview without me being there to "clean things up". This started when an interviewer once asked him about the boats' destination and he said, "Well I'm going to take the son of a b**** up to Kentucky Lake, turn the son of a b**** around and come home!" As all of you know, this was just the way he talked which is why he was so great but it didn't look good in the newspapers!
