I am just wondering if anyone feels the same as I do about this matter. When I first really started getting interested in Titanic around 1995, I never knew the subject would be as popular as it was when Cameron's movie came out. I had already by that time collected some items that would have been impossible to get when the Titanic movie explosion happened. 1998 was an exciting time for anyone who loves Titanic. There were exhibits everywhere and new books and articles in every newspaper. I had never seen anything like this, not even when the Titanic was found in 1985. I just hate the thought that anyone would think that it was due to a movie about two fictional characters that would stoke my interest in Titanic. I was watching A&E's series about the Titanic back in 1995 and up to that point, nothing had been as moving to me as this was. One sad note for me is that in 1995 when I first got interested in Titanic, there were 9 survivors living- now there are only 3. I guess what I am trying to say in this post is 'Does anyone feel a certain sadness in the fact that once again, the subject of Titanic isn't as popular as it was in 1998? We live in such a fickle society where we need something new all the time.
