The news of Steve Irwin's death came as a surprise this morning. I had forgotten to cancel my alarm and was awakened at 4-something by the audio of ABC World News Now. I shut off the clock radio and went back to sleep wondering if I was dreaming or if TV's Crocodile Hunter had really been killed by a stingray.

I've been looking for news about Irwin on the Internet and found some interesting video reports from a New Zealand television station and an article from an Australian paper. Another paper says he was a much bigger star in Europe and America than he was at home. A press release from Animal Planet says that they will air tribute programming tonight at 6:00 and all day on Sunday.

Why wasn't Steve Irwin on the list of eligible celebrities for the Lee Atwater Invitational Dead Pool?

I was stunned when I first heard of Steve's death. He was a wonderful man who loved all animals. He shall be missed.
