What Controversy ?? What Mystery ??

I already own 2 books on this, "The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald"(Stonehouse), and "The Night The Fitz Went Down"(Bishop), and these have very well covered the subject -- How may other ways is there to wreck a large ore ship in a terrible storm ??

Hatch Covers, Hitting Shoals, Monster Waves, Rip Forces, we have read it all and you know ----
-------WE'RE NEVER REALLY GOING TO KNOW THE WHOLE STORY ------ unless there is a time machine around handy to be able to safely go back and take a good look...............

Maybe it was a conspiracy orginating with Lake Superior, along with 2 other shooters on the glassy lake knoll, Lake Michigan & Lake Huron, to bring down the 'Mighty Fitz" for having the Inpunity to sail on the lake fully loaded right into the maw of a Great Lakes Monster Storm -----

------Or did Lake Superior act alone ??

And you know, If I had a copy of this book in my hand ---- I'd probably buy it, because -------

THAT'S JUST THE WAY THINGS ARE .........................
