Sorry I couldn't start this last night; my internet connection puked on me.

It's time for Week #10 of "Who Am I?". Remember, the winner gets a chunk of my gratitude.

This week's subject is a THING.

CLUE #1: I inspired a hit song from the 70's.

Mutual Of New York (MONY) Insurance Company building? Tommy James (of Tommy James & the Shondells) could see the sign from his apartment and inspired him to write MONY MONY. However, this song was a hit in 1968 so I think I'm wrong...

DoublEE wins!

The answer was indeed the Edmund Fitzgerald, named for the former president of the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance company, which owned the ship.

New contest next Monday!
