 I find it weird and kind of touching that, in an age when the victims of car wrecks, plane crashes, and worse are shown in their blood-spattered and sheet-draped horror on cable news and the Internet, a sixteen-year-old picture of an unidentifiable victim of a thirty-five-year-old wreck is off-limits.

So off-limits that an article in the Detroit Free Press apparently couldn't state exactly what made this photograph significant to those with a stake in why the Fitz sank.  Answer: the victim was wearing a life jacket in the photograph.  But I had to look that up elsewhere.
