This obituary is a mess

"John Bachar, a rock climber who inspired awe as a daredevil, condescension as an anachronism and eventually respect as a legend, fell to his death Sunday from a rock formation near his home in California.... Bachar left his mark across the Yosemite Valley." — The New York Times

I believe he shared the fate of many Yosemite climbers who plunged to their deaths singing, "If you see my reflection on the snow-covered hills, the landslide brought me down! Oh shit, it's July! Never mind! Nobody can hear me anyway!"

I think they could have conveyed the same message had they just printed the following;

John Bachar, *Splat*
