research is not all just academic.  for us in our chairs watching the world go by are in contrast with those on the front lines giving us the data that is so important.

and so it goes

I'm sorry, mati. I have mentioned it on the blog. What can one say? It's a terrible tragedy.

mati;

Many of us have been following this story elsewhere, and in fact have been re-posting links similar to the one you did.  This is the first time I've stumbled across your thread.

It is a sad and terrible loss; it is good that a recovery is being attempted; the dog was already rescued.  Hopefully we will able to put two brave brilliant men to their proper rest.

Wow, just stumbled in here as well by chance.
I could not believe how our Dutch media failed to report this so i googled it in Dutch just to be sure.
It looks like it was indeed hardly mentioned, 1 major newspaper is all that popped up with a little article.
Respect and RIP.
