Broadcast Lists Maritime Heritage Problems, Gets Comments

Seattle public radio station KUOW-FM, an affiliate of National Public Radio, broadcast a lengthy feature story on Friday about the troubles facing maritime heritage in Seattle. The story is framed by two historic vessels, the schooner Wawona, and the steamer Virginia V, and recounts the trouble maritime heritage supporters have with the city's Parks and Recreation department. You can listen to the audio or read the script. Highly recommended listening and reading.

Some folks have commented about the story on a LiveJournal blog. The comments range from thoughtful to ignorant. If you are a LiveJournal user, I'd encourage you to add your two cents. Of course, I'd welcome comments on the story on my blog. Just click the comments link below.
