Requiescat in pace, Steve

Reports of the life and death of Steve “Crocodile Hunter” Irwin are the #1 entry on Google News as I write this. Stabbed throught the heart by a sting ray while filming, he died almost instantly. He is only the third person in Australian history to die from a sting ray wound. Discovery Communications is renaming it’s garden at corporate headquartes in Maryland, USA after him and is also establishing a fund in his name to ensure the economic survival of his Australia Zoo wildlife park on the Gold Coast in southern Queensland. The fund will also provide for the education of his 2 children – Bindi Sue, 8, and Robert, 3. The Queensland Premier has offered a state funeral for him to his wife Terri, who has rushed back from a wildlife trek in Tasmania. Crikey mate, I’ll miss you.
