Steve Irwin

My daughter said she really wished I would post on my blog about him. She and I watched many of his shows on Animal Planet. I found him engaging and humorous, and admired his commitment to conservation. I think the fact that she felt so strongly about his death says something very positive about her.

9/12 update, with which I think my daughter would heartily agree.

  1. I had the strangest reaction when I heard about his death. I felt very nearly the same sense that I felt when Thurman Munson died. I can't explain it really. Something about their vitality and relative youth, I suppose. I think Irwin was genuine, I never felt like his behavior, while somewhat extreme, was premeditated. My son and I spent many hours watching him.
