The insanity of a cruise ship slamming into well-charted rocks is hard to fathom in 2011/2012. The absurdity of this cruise ship crashing into rocks is only heightened by the behavior of the captain which has only come to light over the last 48 hours. Not only did he not stay on the ship and help passengers, but it appears that he waited until it was too late to deploy the life rafts. It also seems that he abandon ship long before all of the passengers were off.

To continue the tale of ineptitude, today the CEO of the corporation is clearly throwing the captain under the proverbial bus. The CEO, Pierluigi Foschi, has told the media that the company was misinformed about the exact nature of the crash. This poor captain, Francesco Schettino, is in a world of trouble.
