I just read on the wires that Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter of Animal Planet fame, is dead.

Apparently he was killed in a freak stingray accident while filming a documentary at Bat Reef in Australia. That's not to say that other fatal accidents caused by stingrays are run of the mill, I suppose.

I'm sure there are a million jokes I'll hear later today, but it's never funny when a young guy with a wife and two little kids (one of whom he caught crap for dangling over a croc enclosure during a performance) dies. I guess you cheat death enough times and death gets pissed off about it.
