A maritime send off for Jim Oberstar

As funeral services began today in Maryland for former Minnesota congressman James Oberstar, a maritime tribute played out in Duluth this morning when the laker, “James L. Oberstar” , approached the lift bridge in the city Oberstar served in Congress.

The ship sounded its tribute to Oberstar and, as is custom, the operator of the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge replied. (At the link there is audio of ships tribute)
