We all remember the amazing images a couple of years ago of Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberg courageously landing a commercial airliner in the Hudson river and saving the lives of dozens of people on board. Â That was an example of true courage in a time of extreme crisis. Â On the other end of the spectrum we have Captain Schettino. Â Captain Schettino ran his ship aground and then immediately hopped into a life boat and got away faster than you say “Titanic”. Â Now don’t get me wrong I have no idea what I would do if I were in that situation. Â I would probably panic and freak out too. Â However that is why I’m not the captain of a ship. Â The captain goes down with the ship. Â I do have to say that this guy came up with what might possibly be the greatest excuse ever. Â He said today that he tripped and fell into a life boat. Â I’m going to repeat that because it bares repeating. Â He said he TRIPPED AND FELL into a life boat. Â Oops. Â That’s as if a rapist said “your honor I was walking along and I tripped and fell and low and behold my penis went in”. Â Talk about the worst excuse ever. Â What if OJ just came clean and said what really happened the night he killed Nichole. Â “Your honor I was merely holding a knife and I tripped and fell and accidentally stabbed my wife and some other dude”. Â But let’s not totally crucify the captain. Â Maybe he really sympathized with the lion in “The Wizard Of Oz” as a kid. Â He deserves whatever punishment he gets and probably worse but in the meantime somebody take this guy to see the wizard and get him some courage.
