Just so sad...

Steve Irwin died while diving in the Great Barrier Reef with sting rays. It is strange how people are reacting... As if they knew him. I heard some college students talking about it at the grocery store, they weren't cracking jokes or anything, they were sad... I really respected that guy. He was an amazing personality. I watched The Crocodile Hunter with the kids all the time. At least he died doing what he loved.

In Romania, the death of "Steve" (as he is popularly known) was a tramatic affair. Every person I ran into, even strangers, made mention of the passing. They discussed the death in detail and then spoke of their favorite episodes. It was as if a friend has passed away. And it was pervasive.

As for me, he was just an interesting bloke on the idiot box (which I no longer watch nor own).

Safa, the same could be said for anyone from Bush to Sadr.
