The image on my home page is taken from a photo I took a couple weeks ago of the Goliath Crane at the Fore River Shipyard. The crane is a fixture of my youth as there pretty much wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t catch some sight of it. Now it’s being dismantled. The shipyard has long been closed.
Today, however, there was a collapse of one of the legs of the crane. Details are still being released. But what is known is that one person is dead. Officials aren’t sure if anyone else is trapped in the wreckage. Terrible stuff.
So, is it in bad taste to keep the image up there? I don’t know. What do you think?
