Crikey, What Crappy News

Australia's 'Crocodile Hunter' Steve Irwin killed by stingray' barb while diving near Port Douglas in Australia.

This is a serious bummer all the way around as it was impossible not to like the Crocodile Hunter. His parody on South Park remains one of my favorite episodes and the guy, goofy as a loon, was just a genuinely good man with a big heart.

Really a kind of crappy way to end a nice day. More on that later.
