Goodbye Steve

Last night marked the death of Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin. He was fatally injured while scuba diving for a documentary on stingrays. He took a stingray barb to the chest and was pronounced dead less than an hour later by responding EMTs. Ironically, his documentary was supposed to show how most of the dangers associated with stingrays were groundless and should not be feared. Steve also inspired me to make two separate quests into Florida swamplands this past week in search of alligators since I have never seen one in the wild before. Both trips were a bust. So long Steve!

The lack of alligators was slighty disappointing.
