Default Not Politically Correct

If the GORDON C. GREENE and GOLDEN EAGLE could magically be brought back today, they would be curiousities, not as a way many people would want to spend a vacation. Nothing about them would be acceptable, much less legal today. The world has completely changed since either one of them last ran.
A good example of this is some of the things that went on for passenger entertainment. Today we find this, not only unacceptable, but also extremely offensive.
