  1. PC on Steve Irwin's death:

    All praise to him for his passion and his private conservation efforts, but watching Irwin wrestling deadly animals for a living was like watching one of those Thai tour-operators chewing lightbulbs to entertain the tourists: as Rand said once it brought "a strange kind of embarrassment" at such life-threatening antics in the pursuit of nothing more than entertainment.

    His death is a tragedy, and those who value him should mourn his passing. But let's not kid ourselves at the nature of the tragedy.

    Cheers, Peter Cresswell

    May I say the same about this person. F.E.T.E.

  2. I don't know what on earth FETE means, but I'm not sure either whiy you'd use Brock's death -- sorry "this person" -- as an opportunity to bag me.
