Steve Irwin passed away yesterday. Of all the things to do him in, it was a stingray. He did a lot for conservation in this country and around the world and for protecting Australian animals. Good on you, mate. I'm glad I'd gone on record before he died saying that I'm proud of him, so this wouldn't look like another post pandering to the recidivist habit of speaking well of the deceased. I never bought into cultural cringe, and I'm glad you didn't either.
