I too heard about this from start (missing hiker) to finish (just after his body was found) and while there are other threads whining about this or that, I do not want Lenny's death to go unnoticed in the face of childish disagreement.

Lenny was a hero of all heroes. A fireman who put his life on the line for others. The world is a lesser place without you Lenny. My condolences to Lenny's family and friends.

RIP Lenny
