The capsized Costa Concordia (Photo: European Commission DG/Flickr) It’s a new, ghoulish trend — the ultimate rubbernecking — bad news is now establishing unlikely tourist destinations. The Costa Concordia cruise ship, which ran aground off Italy’s Giglio Island on January 13, 2012, killing 32 people, is such a place.
