The Beacon Guy

So you’ve all read about the “20-something male” who accidentally activated his personal-locater almost every weekend for the past several months.

(If you haven’t, read about it here: http://www.denverpost.com/extremes/ci_14169778.)

Given to hyperbole and with an innate sense of over-reaction, I thought to post a demonic diatribe regarding this young man. But should I?

I’ll put it out there–how dumb was/is this guy? Is he dumb at all? Could it have happened to me/you? I think not, but am I  just another guy being a smug jackass in the face of an honest mistake?

Do tell.
