Graduate Students at Richland University in Richland,New Hampshire have uncovered startling new information about victims and survivors of the sinking of the Titanic.The students,while reviewing individual cases noticed a stunning pattern-all of the American males who survived the tragic disaster were Republicans,while American men who were lost were all Democrats.Ivana Wydebotte,one of the student-researchers said:"We rechecked the results several times because it seemed like a mistake-we know that many well-to-do Americans went down with the ship and we were amazed to learn that none of them,even John J.Astor,were registered Republicans"The study also drew on eyewitness accounts recorded at the time.Witnesses reported seeing four Investment Bankers from Conneticut walking rapidly on the water to a nearby lifeboat packed with European Steerage passengers who witnesses described as Socialists and Social Democrats.The men quickly and efficiently ejected the mostly female and juvenile occupants,using a gold-headed cane to crush the fingers of those who selfishly clung to the boat,threatening to capsize it.Their quick thinking in the crisis saved all four men from a watery grave.The Titanic Disaster continues to fascinate the public with more books.documentaries,movies and scholarly studies being released every year.The fate of the Titanic often serves as a metaphor for the "inevitable" future of Industrialized Civilization.The student-researchers at Richland stumbled on the new information when investigating a theory that the disaster was actually caused by a discussion among Welsh steerage passengers about a Bank Fraud which had caused them to lose their farms.According to the theory,this discussion actually caused the disaster by attracting the giant iceberg into the path of the ship.
