30. Nov 10 1975

I was in Ashland Wisconsin that night.....

Saw the news bulletin at 7pm that there was a freighter in trouble...by 9pm the news was certain that the Fitz was lost.

It has a very special meaning to me and I still get a lump in my throat when I hear that song.

Thanks for posting.

33. We live in a part of the country where family members of the Edmund Fitzgerald live yet today.

We are a personal friend with the daughter of the chief cook that when down with the Fitz.

♫ When suppertime came, the old cook came on deck sayin'
Fellas, it's too rough to feed ya
At seven p.m., a main hatchway caved in, he said
Fellas, it's been good to know ya ♫


November 10 is still a somber day in this community.

He's hilarious.
The person whose tweet is in the OP didn't even give his name... or give him a proper retweet.
I guess you know you're successful when people are appropriating the content you created.
Here's his actual Twitter feed.

that other MAGAts were responsible for swamping their boats, by going way too fast for the traffic and kicking up huge wakes

40. No way this video is real

I can't believe anyone - even in the Trump universe - is this majestically stupid. This looks like a troll job from our side. Not that I'm opposed to that, mind you. But, this is the type of over-the-top thing I'd have made up and planted online as some sort of parody.

...


The only word(s) I can come up with to describe how I feel about this would be ...

Perplexed.

Shocked.

No. Aghast maybe.

No.

Sad.

Yes.

This makes my heart sink.

This guy, for better but definitely for worse, seems to be sincere. This IS his reality. He damn near died for trump. So bereft about losing his boat that he considered going down with the ship. Or so he says, anyway.

I fear for our country that there is actually this level of reality-avoidance. That there actually are people who feel this way about the donald. And who would put themselves in literal physical danger to salute him.

Is that what you call a "cult following"? Yeah, I guess so.

Was there a weather report about risky boating weather there? If so, did he or any of these other nuts bother to consult one?

I fear for our country.



This is really distressing. I just hope to Dear Lord God that these folks stay in the minority.

49. Bless you. Wish I knew you personally.

Obviously, you are a wonderful human being.

What you see, above, is a comedian doing a parody of a Magat Captain who lost his boat.

Your capacity for empathy is remarkable.
