Croc Hunter Dead

Wow, I just woke up to some tragic news. Steve Irwin, the famous “Croc Hunter” on TV died in Australia last night.

He was apparently filming for his program (of all things, the series was called ”Ocean’s Deadliest”) when he got too close to a stingray and the thing whipped it’s tail and slammed its serrated stinger into his heart. I loved the Croc Hunter. Man, I thought he was a fabulous talent and such a great ambassador for Australia…better than Olivia Newton John, anyway.

This is a big bummer.
