Surly Curmudgeon

   The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.

    Steve Irwin: Dead

    Steve Irwin, the TV presenter known as the "Crocodile Hunter," has died after being stung by a stingray in a marine accident off Australia's north coast.

    Media reports say Irwin was snorkeling at Batt Reef, a part of the Great Barrier Reef about 9 miles (about 15 kilometers) from the town of Port Douglas, when the incident happened on Monday morning.

    Gory details here.

    Bizarre, a man known for handling really dangerous things is killed out of the blue by a creature that is usually innocuous. I feel really sorry for his daughter.


    that really sucks, as annoying as some people said he was, i still thought he was a great tv personality and seemed to be a great dad.
