I think it's a bloody disgrace that the officers of the Titanic are being criticized by some. I think they performed their duty very admirably that night and any short comings such as slowness was to expected. I mean after all they are human and humans are not perfect. Like some of you have said, it's easy to say what should and what might have been done while you're on dry land curled up in a nice big chair with your family around you. These fellows didn't have that luxury. It was get the job done and I think they did as good a job as could be expected from any officer on any ship that night.
