    Today (9/8) is the 75th anniversary of the fire that destroyed the SS Morro Castle off the coast of New Jersey and took the lives of 134 people. USMMA's history cites the disaster as one of the reasons for its founding. There is a very good article about the disaster and a number of photos on Michael Grace's website, "Cruising the Past": http://cruiselinehistory.com/?p=3405.
