Steve Irwin Dead? It was Bound to Happen

I am saddened, but not surprised, to hear this bit of news:

Steve Irwin, the quirky Australian naturalist who won worldwide acclaim, has died in a marine accident off Australia's northeast coast, local media reported on Monday.
"The Crocodile Hunter" who won international acclaim and popularized the phrase "Crikey," was believed to have been killed by a stingray barb that pierced his chest.

I used to watch his show regularly a few years ago, and I was just sit there in front of the tube saying "This guy is insane!", but still watched him, nevertheless.

My regards go to his family. I would say, however, that at least he died doing what he loved.
