Steve Irwin, RIP

Sad news out of Australia. Wildlife expert and conservationist Steve Irwin has died, stung through the heart by a stingray. He was 44 and leaves a wife and two children, ages 3 and 8.

I'll miss his unparalleled enthusiasm for the animals he fought so hard to protect and preserve.

Too sad. He always made me smile. I'll miss him, too.

It's so sad. I think what's worse is watching CNN's coverage as they bring up his more controversial moments over and over. It seems unfortunate that his death inspires such judgements instead of just sadness.
I'll miss him. I loved watching him.
