Monosyllabic Pedantry

The Churchbell Chimed till it Rang 29 times.

Today is the 30th anniversary of the Wreck of the Edmund Fitgerald. I'm from upstate NY, so this was a pretty big story back there. I've been on all the Great Lakes, as well as Whitefish Bay. Gordan Lightfoot writing, what is unquestionably his best song, certainly helped to keep the story alive. That man's haunting voice style is made for songs about disaster.

All that remains are the faces and the names of the wives and the sons and the daughters.

Rest in Peace.

    You said 'Edmund fits Gerald' hehehehe.
