If I may digress to an Edmund Fitzgerald story. This really happened:
A friend of mine was at Split Rock lighthouse on Lake Superior waiting for the tour to be over so as to have coffee with the tour guide, who was explaining about lighthouses and shipwrecks and asked (for probably the 9 millionth time) could anyone name the most recent major shipwreck on Lake Superior. The audience of tourists was stumped. Silence. Finally someone in the back asked "Was it wreck of the Gordon Lightfoot?"
