        Famed Bartender Alive and Well

        Brother Benedict (Harvey Simmons) former famed bartender of the DELTA QUEEN recently resumed communications after too many months of silence on his end of the Sternline Telegraph. Fearing the worst after receiving an email from a fellow Benedictine Brother, some months ago, that Brother Benedict was unable to answer his mail, I was jolted off my milk crate, a few days ago, when Harvey's email username was resurrected upon the screen of the shipyard's computer monitor.

        Harvey was a legend, in his day, on the DQ. Starting as a pot washer, he later became a Bar-Back and then a Bartender on the boat in the early '70's. He held court in both the Texas Lounge and the Mark Twain Bar where many learned passengers from all over the land gathered who knew of his works in publishing or with the NY Public Library.
