My memories of the crosshead incident aren't as sharp as it was a fairly minor hiccup. As for the moonlit cornfields, I am drawing a complete and totally irreversible blank.

On the other hand, I recall that John Beatty and Co. played a part in my first trip as pilot, during which Murphy's law was invoked from Paducah to Cincinnati. Actually, Murphy's Law was in effect even before the DQ got to Paducah, where several of us had been waiting for the boat hours and hours.

Someone should engrave Murphy's Law on a bronze plaque and hang it in the Forward Cabin Lounge. This law has probably helped to make many a DQ trip memorable, if not a great source of comic relief.
