And another thing…

To be honest, I’m not sure I even want to write any more about this story because the media is all over it with mis-information. But here it goes anyways…

Costa Cruiselines has kicked the chick out of the nest. In other words, they have enough evidence to release a statement to the media stating that the Captain appears to have made some major errors and did not follow company procedures.

Every night my husband calls me from the ship and I hit him with a barrage of questions. I think in some ways I am in denial that any Captain for that matter could make so many gross errors…so now I guess I am eating my hat because all the fingers point to exactly that! But better still, how did he end up in such a high position in the first place?

What a sad, sad reality. That being said, I want to stop about the Captain once and for all and link you to a short article about a British dancer who assisted guests during the evacuation. I congratulate her for her bravery. Can we please see more of these feel good stories regarding the Costa Concordia?

    The truth will come out in the end. My prayers go out to all involved, both staff and passengers, let us just be grateful that that it wasn’t any worse then it was. In my job, we are given plenty of training for disasters, code reds, blues, purples, greys….. can we all honestly say that we would behave as trained or would we head for the nearest door and think of our own survival and the ones we would be leaving behind? Hmmmmmm……………

  2. I thought of you as soon as I saw the story. The media as usual are doing their best make news rather than stick to just reporting it.

    On top of that the xenophobic comments about Italy, Italians and conclusions that can be reached as per the whole EU /euro problem vis a vis Italy, all over the net under news stories about the tradegy, really stick in my craw.
