The urban/general population loss is truly tragic. On the otherhand, despite Everest's commercial nature these days, and it's attractiveness to amateurs, climbing 8000m still is very dangerous business. I do feel concern and sympathy for those on the mountain, but it's a different feeling. One of risk taken and hopefully fully acknowledged, and so you play your hand and hope for the best. Afterall, it's the risk that makes it attractive in the ultimate analysis.
