    Krakauer made a saint out of Chris McCandless, whose primary claim to fame is to walk unprepared into the Alaska wilderness and dying half a day's walk from civilization. That ain't noble, that's stupid. And when stupidity is presented as nobility, my hackles go up.

God, that's the perfect summation of why I dislike that story.
