The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald - Sank in a Lake Superior storm on November 10, 1975, with the loss of the entire crew of 29. Recent evidence uncovered that a multitude of ships - same class as the Fitzgerald had also sunk under mysterious circumstances due to a "fatal" flaw in the hull design. (Incidentally,all of the families of the Edmund Fitzgerald crew were quickly paid off 12 months in advance of official USCG findings).

An aerial view showing the massive pile of tributes and flowers stretching from the gates gates of Kensington Palace out into Kensington Gardens in the days leading up to Princess Diana's funeral.
The flowers at Kensington Palace Gates. Diana will always be the people's princess; the people's Valentine. She died 15 years ago today, August 31st. What a sad loss to the world!/****And the Queen thought to deny her a State funeral / burial! I can only believe it was a case of momentary insanity!! It seems the Royal Family had deluded themselves about Diana's popularity among the people. They felt she belonged to them, represented, did good works for them, and was concerned for them. Whew!!!
