Why celebrate this tragedy?

Thanks to Frances Burscough for what she wrote about the "celebration" of the sinking of the Titanic (Weekend, March 10). I couldn't agree more.

I don't understand how anyone who has seen A Night to Remember and the even more realistic Titanic could use the word "celebration" in this context.

Perhaps, next year, we might see Donaghadee and Bangor throwing a similar fun week to "celebrate" the 60th anniversary of the sinking of the Princess Victoria. Any bets?
