    Default Acceptance of Risk

    The Old Boat Column in the September 10, 2007, issue of the Waterways Journal with the above title may be of interest and even some use in the Save the Queen campaign. It compares the risks taken daily by a Coast Guard officer with those accepted by passengers aboard the boat. It describes the resolute courage needed to perform a Coast Guard officer's duties going to and from work and living at home.

    Alan, you fired both barrels. Now please reload and keep up the good work. The Old Boat Column in the WWJ was right on the theme we must take to convince Congress that She must be granted an exemption from a ridicules misinterpretation of a law. I hope your editors will express the same in a future editorial. It is unfortunate that “WE THE PEOPLE “ are not able to access all of the officials that have been elected to represent us. Maybe the only way is, to ask those who agree with the stupidly of the law, as stated, to talk to others who are uninformed and without using any tradeoffs, let them know just what is important to the future preservation of an American historic treasure.

    Alan,
    This is from the issue you mention. Would this be the right article?

    I see. This is the only article I could find on an internet search in the Waterways journal that even remotely resembles what you had said. The article looked like it may still apply. It was, however, dated a week later. I guess you have to be a subscriber to the journal to actually find the article. I have no connection with the river industry other than my love for the steam paddlewheelers. The DQ is among the last of them!

    Keep up the good work you're doing in finding alternative solutions to the goal of saving the DQ. Your suggestions have been among the best I've seen! Getting the exemption is important for now, but we've got to think past the current exemption if we are to keep her safe and prevent this from happening all over again. I supported the Save the Delta Queen campaign in 1970 and didn't really expect I'd be doing it again a full 37 years later!
