Very Sad News

I was very sad to have Michele wake me up this morning to tell me that Steve Irwin had died. He was killed by a stingray that sent a poison stinger directly into his heart. Ironically, stingrays are not nearly the most poisonous animal he's seen, but it got him in the right place. :-(

I guess we all kinda joked that he'd be killed someday. Perhaps we even made wagers on the animal that would do it. Nonetheless, we've all been shocked to hear it.

Steve Irwin may very well be the most loved man in the world. Anyone who didn't like or respect the guy needs their brain checked. He did so much for conservationism and for helping us learn about the most dangerous of animals.

And he did it while making us laugh.

He'll be missed. Still so sad to realize that he's gone -- that quickly.
