As the old Churchlady on Saturday Night Live would say, "Well, isn't that special?" I don't trust The Trust at all. During 2008 thanks to The Trust's then President Mohs, there was no effort to support the DELTA QUEEN. It is commonly believed that Mohs and Rep. Oberstar were buddies and Mohs did not want to do the honorable thing and support her ladyship. Last September the representatives of The Trust didn't even show up in Chattanooga for a prearranged media event announcing The Trust's supposed support this time for the DELTA QUEEN. I wonder if this backing out at the last moment has anything to do with The new arrangement between The Trust and The American Queen Steamboat Co. For each new booking on the AQ The Trust is given $5.00. To me incorporating Dale's phrase with one from The Bard, "What do I know, but me thinks there is something rotten in the state of Denmark," is appropriate.
