Which Is More Important: A Union, or a Historic Landmark?

Apparently, it's the union.

And so a piece of history, the last riverboat recognizable to Mark Twain, a ship listed on the National Register of Historic Places, a vessel safe enough that the Secret Service permitted Jimmy Carter, when he was a sitting President, to board her, will cease operation because a powerful Senator is beholden to a union.

Most Democratic politicians seem to be people in whom the lust for power has become so dominant that it has shriveled their souls, leaving no room for anything else--certainly not an appreciation for history or beauty.
