Southern Minneapolis Couple Experiences Their Own Titanic

A south Minneapolis couple celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary by evacuating a sinking cruise liner.

Jon and Cindy Hof were planning on sailing to the Greek island of Santorini Thursday when their cruise ship, the Sea Diamond, hit a reef, the Star Tribune said.

15 hours after its 1,200 passengers and 400 crew members evacuated, the Sea Diamond sank. Two passengers -- a father and daughter -- are still missing, the Star Tribune said. The captain, who blamed the accident on strong currents, has been charged with negligence.

I thought the lead in this article -- "Jon Hof seems to be the wisecracker in the family" -- was interesting and a good interest-catcher, but I felt it could relate to the actual topic more.
