I just saw this in today's Courier-Journal. Steam vs diesel isn't exactly what it's all about. I believe those organizing the Derby Festival have totally missed the point as did the organizers of Tall Stacks 2006. At least at that time we still had our Queens on the rivers. I suppose this time it's due to the fact that there is no other genuine steam paddlewheeler to race the Belle of Louisville against since all the Queens have been retired from service on the river.

I hope this isn't a portent of the future of steamboating in general!
