Good points, Franz. We need to keep positive here.

I did send emails to all of those contacts, keeping in mind that, in most cases, we are writing their staffs, and not the Reps/Senators themselves, so I added thoughts appropriate to any member who is from a river state.

I also closed with "Her safety record is impeccable and she deserves to continue her jouneys on America's rivers." I think such a statement is germane in light of the fact that the exemption is all about safety.

I also took some editorial liberty with the Majestic America Line suggested text and changed the word "ship" to "boat".

Save the DQ!

Paul
