.Just a few verrrry personal details about that Rock Island mess. My mother Letha Greene nearly went berserk over that mess, and then the pyromaniac and the car rolling into the river, etc...it was like a trip from hell. But at some point , mom decided to visit a Christian Scientist Practitioner uptown in Rock Island. Now we weren"t Christian S."s but she always got alot of solace from the positive thinking approach of that religion. So she did that. And her story was that when she went to bed that night nearly crazed with horror that this was it for Greene Line, she tried out the Practitioners advice and put her head on the pillow and said"They Will be Done"...and when she woke up the next day, the Delta Queen was going down the river! The damn thing was fixed!. And she'd heard about a thousand people say "" I know miss Letha's going to sell this boat NOW!" and she might very well have had they not gotten those DK parts. That incident aged her 20 years.. And my posting this incident is NOT meant to be a sunday school lesson, for it was more of a place mom could go to talk to somebody in peace, but it surely helped steady her blood pressure...so you can tell THAT to the remaining "historians"! ==Jane Greene
