Quote of the Day – Francesco Schettino Edition

‘I didn’t even have a lifejacket because I had given it to one of the passengers – I was trying to get them into the lifeboats in an orderly fashion. All of a sudden the boat listed between 60-70 degrees, I tripped and ended up in one of the lifeboats. That’s why I was in there.”

Francesco Schettino, Captain of the ill-fated Costa Concordia.

Isn’t this something like the dog ate my homework?  Pitiful.  I hope this man is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  Coward.
