I remember watching this show with my hubby. It was fascinating, and Steve Irwin was certainly not hard on the eyes. But I also remember his extreme recklessness when dealing with wild animals, which is why we decided it wasn't appropriate for our young children to watch. (And I didn't look at this through PETA eyes; they're a bunch of nuts ). It's just Irwin used no common sense, gouging at venomous spiders and picking up toxic snakes with his bare hands. So, when he was killed by one of the most gentle creatures of the oceans, hubby and I were not surprised. I am very sorry he was killed, but I do hope his kids learned to use the common sense their father ignored.
You know, I’m not overly fond of Mother Teresa’s negligent treatment of those who were in her care. But I wouldn’t speak ill of her on her birthday!
It’s not her birthday is it?
Oh good. Irwin, much like Teresa, may not have always been exemplerary but I believe these people to be of good intentions and genuine passion for those they helped. It seems pointless and tasteless to mar their reputation post-mortem. Have some respect for the dead.
