The Age of Aquarium?

Congratulations and a million thanks for the in-depth story about the National Aquarium (“Underwater Dive,” 1/5). I wish I could write so well (and type so fast!). Already the story has been seen by Orsingers all over, as far away as California. You see, we are all descendants from a tiny village in southern Germany, but now blended with every conceivable variation into the harmony that is America. I can tell that Annys Shin was able to read some of the stories from my slides. I’m glad I made them; the original newsprint is deteriorating.

Again, thanks again for a great story.
