I agree that most of Moss' contemporaries look back and shake their heads. The consensus seems to be, "It was ridiculously dangerous, but I still really wanted to do it, so I did it despite the danger."

I'm glad you didn't take offense at my tone (or if you did to some degree, you didn't make an issue of it. No offense intended.
