Who's with me here?

Okay. I know I'm harping on the subject, but I'm strangely distressed by it.

I've had the conversation with many people. And I'm just going to speak for "the group."

We're all very upset that Steve Irwin died.

Everyone is.

I can say that the Television watching WORLD is upset that Steve Irwin died. Among those that watch TV and have seen Steve Irwin's shows and know who he is, you (and I) are all upset that Steve Irwin died.

It's not like when Red Buttons died. Those of us who heard (and it registered, even...) were like, "Oh, but he was so old...I mean, the last thing he was in was that episode of ER when he played Mr. Rubadoux and Noah Wylie made Mrs. Rubadoux die, and Mr. Rubadoux freaked out, and was crying and yelling, after having been such a nice old man... Wait. What? Shit! He died on July 13, 2006?! I thought he died years ago!!!"

But this was Steve Irwin! He was young! And invincivble! I mean, how many POISONOUS SNAKES had he held and no biting! And then he floats over a STINGRAY!? and DIES?!


I miss you, Steve Irwin! I guess, you, too, Red Buttons...

I knew it had to happen soon. Watching that guy was like watching a 7 year old play with bottlerockets. I'm just thankful everything was taped first instead of live. I'm much sadder for his wife and 2 young kids. I think he was irresponsible, even tho he was very entertaining.
