hope some inspired folk talent revisits Harry Chapin’s Taxi song;  a lost-love story called “water taxi,” about a passenger and a captain (or crew) who meet (or don’t) years too late (early).

Who is this Curt Berger?

And Ed Rogowsky, depicted in the last foto of the post in 2007, who was he and where is this vessel that now goes as Heavens Gate?
