Life's Ironies: Avalanche Awareness Class Caught In Deadly Slide

Proof that irony is alive and well in the world today:


AVALANCHE AWARENESS CLASS CAUGHT IN DEADLY SLIDE


PITKIN COUNTY, Colorado - One person died Sunday when an avalanche swept through a group of people taking an avalanche awareness class.

The Pitkin County Sheriff's Department says six people were involved in the slide on the backside of the Aspen Highlands Ski Area in an area known as Five Fingers Bowl. It is outside the Aspen Highlands Ski Area.

One person was critically injured and later died after attempts to resuscitate him. The rest of the group had minor or no injuries.

Did your formerly unstable sidebar "just fix itself" or did you fix it yourself? What's the deal? I haven't seen it waver in several days.

I've done nothing to it, Ron...other than formerly futile attempts to bribe or threaten it. Maybe it found religion and has chosen to be kind to me from now on? Hmmm....
