    It's been a long time since I read Krakauer's book but did Weathers ever apologize for being such a heavyweight, self-satisfied fool on that expedition?  Any remorse?  While his Kiwi guide put his life on the line for him (thinking of others again, like a socialist), Beck just lied, lied, lied, sucking up resources and the lives of others.

    No wonder, indeed.  

    This guy does such a disservice to Messner and all those who died up there in service of goals greater than their bucket lists.

      style, going around to companies hawking American Exceptionalism and outright greed.

      Back in 1996 not breaking in his boots ahead of time -- sure, an out and out murder would have been worse.

      That connects with me (though not stated or directly implied by Krakauer) as what ended up killing Harris and Namba directly and the other three possibly.

      But Hell, the Teabaggers are in love with Limbaugh. There's not a helluva lot of difference in 2011 between what Limbaugh and Weathers are selling.
