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.
