Default SAVE THE DELTA QUEEN Take II

In spite of all the tears, the appeals, the petitions, the public support, the rallys, the celebrity appearances... the 1970 SAVE THE DELTA QUEEN epic was a failure. Only when a rider was added to a bill to pay a Federal employee moneys due, that could not be denied, was the QUEEN saved at the last moment. The DELTA QUEEN may need another insider-friend when all's said and done; so writing those cards and letters to the Congress may help to find that certain friend.
