Farewell to Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, who died yesterday in the line of duty, not at the hands of a crocodile, but a stingray. Well, it only takes one bad egg. It is a bit crass to point out the tragicomic aspect of his demise but the incident reminds me of something out of the Simpsons, such as the episode when Homer facilitates the surprisingly swift and anti-climactic execution of the great James Bont. I wonder if Steve expected to go out this way?
