I was going to note the death of Steve Irwin, but nothing I'd say could top Jay Pinkerton's obituary, which is sweet and funny and offers this excellent maxim besides:

You can't spend your life chasing after the world's most deadly animals without one of them eventually figuring out that you're very stupid food.

Sad, but true. Rest in peace, Mr. Irwin.

You know what? I thought he was an annoying bastard and I didn't watch his show, but I woke up this morning and saw that and thought:


That's really sad.

The kids loved him, and I was shocked to see the news this morning (I've been away from the 'puter and tv for a couple of days).

After all the poisonous snakes and large predators...then this freakishness...

yeah -- fuck.

I feel so sad for his very young kids.

He was an irresponsible, insufferable, thrill-seeking twit but I'm sorry he was killed. uulscslm

He made his choices, his family went along with them, and he may have raised some consciousness along the way. Nothing much wrong there. I'd have bet on crocs or snakes though.
