    My letter regarding the Viking Cruise V.P.s comments

    Just wait for Delta Queen's return

    I wrote this the day I read his asinine comment in the paper, and it finally appeared today. At that time, the DQ's destination was NOLA, not Houma.

    Steamboating colleagues,
    Judy, many thanks for the link to your published Editorial Letter along with the link to Houma viewed on the high level geodedic camera. Nice letter to say the least. The power of just one Editorial Letter carries great weight often more than a dozen articles. Now I have a good idea of the area around Houma where the DQ is docked. Never been down in that neck of the woods. The camera view from way, way up can be pulled in by + or - for a good view.

    I went in for more detail on where the DQ is docked at 3639 Industrial Ave. in Houma at the 'aggregates' business. The local newspaper at Houma is: carrying the recent article with history, plans and interview of Mr. Martin. I had to click, click until I honed in on the article.
    Again, thanks.

      My letter regarding Vicking Cruise VP comments

        Well said, Judy. I appreciate all you do.


          Great letter Judy

          Just wanted to say that you wrote a great letter Judy! Way to go!

          Also - for the record, I purchased a DQ sweater when I was in Chattanooga in January 2013. I have been hosting a weekly cable TV show in the St. Paul, MN area every week for the past six months - and I wear that sweater on every episode as my way of giving a subtle DQ plug to the viewership. I'm looking forward to the day when the sweater can be reunited with the vessel.
