Item: Searchers Find Body on Mount Hood …

... two other still missing ... may have fallen here.

DFO: I don't understand the motivation that prompts people to climb mountains, particularly in the dead of winter in the Pacific Northwest. But I do understand that the three lost mountaineers have put people at risk trying to find and rescue them. I feel for their families. But I'm struggling to sympathize with them, if any of them are still alive, for their foolish decision to climb Mount Hood in December. Izzit me?
