...... wiseguy, jerk, a$$hole? This ought to ruffle some feathers. If not get me tarred and feathered.

Can't say I know him in person. Just his ST persona.

Yes, he can really climb, and is a saver of lives. And he knows his Hindu theology.

But is he not one of the most condescending voices on this site?

It seems the climbers of his era deify him. (Coz's story "Crazy Eyes" in Alpinist 28 is a great example)(a good read). No matter what he says. When he speaks he is very often insulting, and his legion of hero worshippers always pat him on the back when he does. They are all his 'yes men'. He is human too, and not immune to ego inflation.

One thing I can't forget, long ago when I was still lurking and not posting, is when he used the term 'Japs', referring to Japanese people. Kind of like a modern day white man calling a black man 'colored'. Not cool these days.

For such a smart guy his ignorance and insensitivity is glaring.

Since this seems to be the time of the season of the 'whipping post'..........

skipt you boast bravery from your padded seat gawking at your screen whom you adore as your mock fan.

the o.p. is not stupid. im sure of it based upon his / her organization of thoughts, concepts, and words. your generalized accusation (two c's skipt) based on your ignorant judgement fits right into your republican boots.

quit posting while drunk. you're not too amiable (means sociable).

(not) knowing werner,
he would welcome the inquiry.
for he is developed in his ways, and simple prodding does nothing to upset his position, except maybe strengthen it.

Werner's okay, but I'm starting to like this Norwegian guy, though that could just be the common genetic ancestry talking.

I will not remove this post since I don't want people to not know why I am writing the following edit. Mountain Dog... My SINCERE apologies! You are right... I am tired and got you mixed up with someone else. So very sorry.

(Original post (which is crap!) Mountain Dog comes back to offer opinion on someone he has not met. Just like he did of Bridwell. I think someone has a jealousy issue.

I'm not sure if the old Hindu likes me or not, but my personal impression of him is ROCK SOLID. The dude has legacy, doesn't brag, just does his thing.

Probably one of the crankiest, most honest f*#kers here. And that's why I love the dude. Plus, he saves peoples lives...

Jesus loves The Werner. Haha!
