This actually reminds me of the IMAX "Everest" where, while they were there, the 1996 disaster happened.  So, the film crew joined in the search to help.

Mr. Even will pity this headline.

Everest Avalanche Tragedy

Look we know they're going to miss Barrie and Cooke is a world class asshole who should have been suspended for more then 7 games but "Tragedy" is a bit hyperbolic.

The real tragedy here is that a whole lot of folks died to support what basically boils down to rich people trying to find a cheap thrill. It's a tragedy that ANYONE died just so that someone could repeat a "monumental first" that hundreds of people have experienced..

You're also forgetting their justification for Everest: it's the towns main source of income.

Granted, but it's like saying a foxconn factory should stay because the world needs ipods more than those poor children. It'd be unfortunate if the town had to find a new way to sustain itself, but it's a tragedy that the sherpas died to protect tourism...

Not saying its not a tragedy when *anyone* dies at work... but aren't many of the sherpas relatively the richest people in that region?

I'd criticize subby, but at least a third of my green lights have a typo.

As a Sherpa, I'm finding this even

I might watch this...

...if it was going to be on Smithsonian.

I saw something about this on the news ticker in the lobby at work, and forgot to follow up. This is a pretty shiatty story...
