No wonder it was so crowded aboard the LST-325 when the boys and I went to see it in Marietta, Ohio, last weekend.

This from the Evansville Courier & Press :

 — LST 325 is enroute home following a monthlong trip up the Ohio River that drew 41,500 visitors in three cities.

That's slightly less than the population of the city that I live near, Huntington, W.Va., the sixth largest city along the Ohio.

That 45,000 doesn't count -- can't count -- the people who lined the river bank watching and watching for the boat on its voyage up and down the river.
