    Terribly sad. I really wish there was a way to preserve her. Then there is the poetic irony of the web story that states that the final nail in her coffin is the 'decline' in newspapers while describing the Ling as being built to battle German U-boats. More like our collective willingness to choose flashy and ill sources forms of media over the more thoughtful newspaper.

    That does suck. I wish I had the money.

    Interesting story, Gaines. I wish I could help, but there seems to be little chance at resolution.
