You get to pick between a Kaiserschmarrn and a Germknödel.

http://www.stltoday.com/news/national/cruise-ship-s-first-victim-identified-as-violinist-sandor-feher/article_e8c378a1-761f-5b71-8619-985d06e8133a.html

The first victim from the Costa Concordia disaster was identified Wednesday — Sandor Feher, 38, a violinist from Hungary who had been working as an entertainer on the stricken cruise ship.


Jozsef Balog, a pianist who worked with Feher on the ship, told the newspaper Blikk that Feher was wearing a life jacket when he decided to return to his cabin to pack his violin. Feher was last seen on deck en route to the area where he was supposed to board a lifeboat.
According to Balog, Feher helped put life jackets on several crying children before returning to his cabin.

In a just world the captain would face the death penalty.

So it appears the reason for the initial grounding has been identified......

Costa Concordia: investigators probe role of young Moldovan woman on cruise ship
The 25-year-old blonde, identified as Domnica Cemortan... was reportedly the guest of one of the ship’s officers and may be the woman that passengers saw drinking and chatting with Capt Francesco Schettino on Friday evening, a few hours before the Costa Concordia ran aground.

---

Adding to the mystery, she was reportedly not on the official list of passengers and crews.

You know, I was going to post a day or so ago that this captain probably thought being a captain was about getting chicks more than sailing a ship, then thought it would be in bad taste... perhaps it is true.

In a just world he wouldn't be captain. And there'd be no death penalty.

http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/18/opinion/loy-costa-captain/index.html

Definitely wanted to post this...Admiral Loy was Commandant of the Coast Guard while I was active duty, and he is from my hometown of Altoona. Good man...

When I first heard about the Costa Concordia, I thought back to the guidance that Alexander Hamilton provided in 1790 to the captains of the first 10 cutters of the U.S. Revenue Marine -- the precursor to the Coast Guard. Hamilton advised that they had been "selected with careful attention to character" and told them to "Refrain from haughtiness, rudeness, or insult" and to "Endeavor to overcome difficulties by a cool and temperate perseverance in your duty." He declared that a captain's demeanor and behavior must "be marked with prudence, moderation, and good temper. Upon these qualities must depend the success, usefulness and ... continuance of the establishment in which they are included."

An off duty captain, Roberto Bosio, happened to be on board the Costa Concordia when it ran aground and swung into action, helping dozens of women and children into lifeboats. He has been called a hero in the Italian press, but rejects the moniker. "Don't call me a hero. I just did my duty, the duty of a sea captain," he said. Captain Bosio met Alexander Hamilton's charge. Captain Schettino failed to do so in every imaginable way.
