    If you mean Titanic, no.
    If you mean Lusitania? Well, uh, no either.

    It was the year we entered WWI. And 1917 was the year for both Russian Revolutions.

    Nineteen hundred and aught-seventeen was the year my last living grandparent was born. And she still kicks ass at 90 (come October 11) so Granny says BRING IT!
