The Largest Cargo Ship To Visit America Could Not Dock In Fort Worth

This blogging is yet one more in the continuing series of bloggings about something I see in  a west coast online news source, usually the Seattle Times, that I would not expect to be seeing in a Fort Worth online news source about such a thing happening in Fort Worth. Or Dallas.

Apparently the largest cargo ship ever to float to the United States floated to Seattle yesterday morning.

Even though Fort Worth has a mighty fine big imaginary island, no big boats float around that island, due to the lack of water, among other navigation issues.

Years ago there was a bizarre scheme to turn Dallas and Fort Worth into seaport towns by dredging the Trinity River to make it sufficiently deep to float big boats inland from the Gulf of Mexico.

I have no idea why anyone thought it was a good idea to alter the long abused Trinity River in such a way, turning it into a shipping canal.....
