'Titanic' tickets go on sale soon

Jackie Loohauis-Bennett and Steve Schultze report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Tickets will go on sale July 19 for "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibit," a major touring exhibit opening Oct. 10 at the Milwaukee Public Museum, 800 W. Wells St.

Not listed, but perhaps included is the April 16, 1912 issue of The Onion with its headline story World's Largest Metaphor Hits Ice-berg.
At 4:23 a.m. Greenwich Standard Time, the following message was received from the rescue ship Carpathia:

Titanic struck by icy representation of nature's supremacy STOP insufficient lifeboats due to pompous certainty in man's infallibility STOP Microcosm of larger society STOP
