Default Happy Birthday American Queen

Miss Clara, esteemed AQ Riverlorian...ahem...Discovery Guide... e mailed some of us today a reminder that 12 years ago today , on a VERY hot and humid June 2, the AQ was christened by Paul Harvey's wife Angel, amidst much pomp and ceremony.

You may recall she was christened with a huge bottle of Tabasco sauce... 21 gallons, if I remember correctly. If anyone asks you how far 21 gal. of tabasco goes, the answer is... about 5 feet.

For those who were there for the MQ christening: can you give us some details?
