The purpose for this blog is to pass on good information that makes people think and, it keeps me sharp. Writing is a discipline and I'm not a very disciplined person at times.
Here is something to keep you sharp. When you hear names like James Kim, Aron Ralston, Timothy Treadwell or Christopher McCandless, do you simply emote like some demented Ing'enue, or do you look at what they did wrong and decide not to do that? Or see a lack of preparation and then decide to prepare?
In some circles, any critique of these people is viewed as "Monday morning quarterbacking" or some other nonsense. Then we come to the chestnut of the idiotic, "It's better to be kind than to be right."
