Just now, I wrote to my Congressman--Jim Jordan of Ohio:

Regarding the renewing of the exemption from the Safety of Life at Sea for the steamer Delta Queen: I read that Congressman Oberstar's objection is based on safety of the passengers.

How many passengers died in fires on steamboats in America last year? NONE!

How many drivers and passengers died in automobile collisions in America last year? Thousands and thousands.

Mr. Jordan, ask Congressman Oberstar: How come Congress fails to protect Americans from the real and current dangers of automobiles, yet is so eager to denounce American steamboats (with an excellent safety record) as potentially unsafe and, therefore, worthy of being put under a law meant for ships at sea, not on the rivers?
