Look! There is the Captain Posing for a Picture Now!

Captain Francesco Schettino being arrested

During the wreck of The Italian cruise ship Costa Condordia , where at least 11 people were killed, the captain, Francesco Schettino was among the first people who left the ship. So much for the old saying the captain goes down with his ship. He was arrested. The investigators on taking a close look of what went wrong are finding that everything went wrong. No emergency plans or anything. It looks like the only plan the captain had was to get his ass off a sinking ship.

It reminded me of the cruise we took about 5 years ago to the Bahamas. One of the first things the ship’s order-of-business was to sell poses with the captain in his full dress uniform. Of course for a good price you could purchase the picture of you and the captain discussing nautical stuff and other wise things. It reminded me of having your kid pose with Santa for a picture ($$).

I suppose that is the first order-of-business of any cruise ship is to take of picture with each person with the Captain and then the photographer would have ample time to make the image into a print and have them available before the cruise is over, for a price, of course.

I wonder after all is said and done if Captain Francesco Schettino got to pose with individual passengers and if so, will those passengers get those pictures, have them frame and displayed to cherish forever?

I posted today on FB that I thought his name was spelled wrong. It should have no "e" and two "i's".

Right?

What a loser he is.

Judy,
His stories get better. He said he did not abandone ship, it abandoned him. He said he was knocked off and landed in a lifeboat.
