Delta Queen nominated as endangered historic site (AP)

From the Associated Press via USA Today:

CINCINNATI (AP) — The historic riverboat Delta Queen has been nominated to become one of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.

Landing on the exclusive annual list could save the steamboat from likely decay. On Oct. 31, a congressional exemption that allowed the wooden boat to carry more than 50 overnight passengers expired.
