Edmund Fitzgerald

Thanks to pixel39's reminder, I requested Gordon Lightfoot's "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" on WVBR, and Peter just played it a few minutes ago. The song commemorates the death of 29 men 29 years ago today, when the ore carrier Edmund Fitzgerald was lost on Lake Superior.

One way or another, I remember every year, and listen to the song. It's not an even number, but this anniversary seems particularly worth observing.
