I've obviously run across this thread w-a-y past the beginning but I found it after attending a Remembering Titanic & Other Ship Disasters at a local funeral home today. Part of that memorial was telling jokes because, let's admit it, that's the way America deals with tragedy! I was looking up the 2 miles to land - straight down - because that was one of the ones told today at the funeral home. And do you know what? It was nice to be able to laugh in a funeral home chapel instead of crying. People need to lighten up!
