Ya know,

I'm all for not passing judgment until the facts are all in and examined, but it is becoming much harder to do that in light of what's coming out in the media now about the [in]actions of Costa Concordia's master and crew (and possibly further up the chain, the ship's owners). This could be one of those disasters that rewrites the book. You know, the 'what-not-to-do' section.

I pass wind, too, but my judgment is, well, pusillanimous comes to mind . . . unlike the behavior of the crew on the Andrea Doria in 1956.

I am thinking it will turn out that the captain was related to someone higher up in the company and that's how he got the job.
