Why so judgemental? Obviously the media and members of congress believed Arison was directly responsible for almost everything that happened aboard Triumph, and it is one of the cruise lines in his control, and also the one which made him his fortune and allowed him to buy the other lines. We are just discussing that aspect of this situation - I don't see that discussion as nonsensical at all.

But just to be clear, when I referenced the CEO of Carnival Cruise Lines I was referring to Gerry Cahill, not Arison. I think Arison fell on his sword for Cahill, in a way, in the sense that Carnival Cruise Line was drawing heat, but I still stand by my statement that I think it is presumptuous of any reporter to say they "know" what Cahill was thinking and that he purposely cut back on Carnival ship maintenance.
