    Looks like he ate one of those Fiat 500s trying to make it to our shores.

    In today's news:

    GROSSETO, Italy - Lawyers for Francesco Schettino, captain of the shipwrecked Costa Concordia cruise liner, made a second unsuccessful attempt Wednesday to reach a plea deal in a trial over the disaster in which 32 people died.

    Schettino, 52, faces charges including manslaughter and causing the loss of his ship in the accident in January 2012 off the picturesque island of Giglio and keeled onto its side.

    More than 4,000 passengers and crew scrambled from the ship in a chaotic evacuation. Schettino is accused of abandoning ship before all had been rescued.

    On the first day of the trial, defense lawyers said Schettino would plead guilty in exchange for a sentence of three years and five months, but prosecutors rejected the offer.

    It was Schettino’s second attempt at a plea deal. A previous offer to serve three years and four months was rejected in May.

    10-15 years would seem more realistic. Seems to be focused on being out before he's 56. Is there an Italian retirement benefit at 56 that he'd qualify for if not in prison?
