Response to Let's not make a hero out of Ralston
I just saw the promo for Aron Ralston's appearance on Late Show with David Letterman. I read the NG Adventure article too. I agree that this would have been avoided by a 10 second speech with even a casual acquaintance like a co-worker. A speech like, I'm going climbing in Bluejohn canyon Utah, I'll be back Monday.
But think about it, would anyone be willing to trade their right hand for any amount of fame or time in the limelight? He is famous now, but is he a hero?
