Subject: RE: Origins: Folk/Blues Songs: The Titanic Disaster
First, I must amend my previous post. Not "Living on the Fault Line," but rather "Born on the Fault Line." Woke up this morning at 2:00 AM in a cold sweat realizing the gravity of that egregious error.


I'm naturally curmudgeonly and skeptical. In one of Walter Lord's books--I think "The Night Lives On," there is a list of Titanic survivors. Would be interesting to verify that and to see if Pat's name is there.

I say this because of a wonderful story I came across concerning a reunion of the Light Brigade several years after the charge. As every fan of Tennyson (or should I say, "As both fans of Tennyson") know, there were 600 men in the outfit, and they suffered horrendous casualites, but when they had a reunion, something like 900 men showed up.
