Aw, Steve, you'll be missed
This has nothing to do with writing, I know, but it just doesn't feel right not to mention the shocking and untimely passing of Aussie legend Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter. Weird that you can feel grief for someone you've never met or had any sort of connection with--only the kind that can be forged through a television screen. Personable, fearless, funny...he was a true character and a fantastic educator. We'll really miss him here at my house.
