Default Some Positive Signs

We were on the Thanksgiving trip last week on the Delta Queen. We had an early flight (and Majestic transported us to the dock in the shuttle van rather than have us wait for a bus later in the morning) and were surprised to see petitions and articles displayed on the gift shop counter. There were signatures from the previous passengers and blank pages ready for the next ones. I saved the petitions I had brought and took them on shore at most port stops. Copies of the NY Times and several articles were available for the taking. Best of all many crew members were openly wearing Save the Delta Queen buttons, including Capt P Thoeny wearing the one John Lewis distributed.
Lots of conversation about what could and should be done and many willing folks ready to take up the cause. I gave this web site address and that of Save the Delta Queen to as many as possible.
One touching moment - the American Queen passed us one night, heading down river at quite a clip. The passengers over there were cheering and applauding the Delta Queen as they flew by.
Thanks to all who keep up the fight whether on the front line or in the background.
