Carnival Fail

Carnival Cruise Lines owned the Costa Concordia.

Europe generated about 38 percent of Carnival’s revenue in fiscal 2010, the last full year for which geographic results are available. Its Genoa-based Costa Crociere unit is the continent’s largest cruise line based on passengers and ship capacity, according to Carnival.

Did you think the accident happened to some back-water Italian cruise-line?


Luxury and efficiency make bad shipmates.

-from an article in the Atlantic magazine written a year after the loss of the Titanic.

Why do I think that this is all a metaphor for American civilization? As the Italians have arrested the captain of the Costa Crociere, do we get to arrest the ruling elites here?
