Steve Irwin with his type of job and style must have known that one day the odds could catch up with him.
I heard on a news show the experts are expecting a surge of public interest in nature type of shows. The news program said there were only two now. I bet the National Geographic Channel might have a different opinion about how many nature shows they are.
It is a good thing that Steve Irwin, who was very concerned about the environment and the natural habitats of animals being erased from the planet, did what he could while he was alive to keep the concern in people's minds.
I have always enjoyed watching nature shows. I like to watch documentaries of a family of wild animals and their interactions, pecking order, and their politics - who rules and the method the self proclaim leader claims his throne.
You don't think this new surge of interest in nature shows is that the people are watching just in case another nature-man gets torn to shreds do you?
Anyway, speaking of Australian accents reminds me of what I overheard at an arts and crafts show in downtown Marietta last Sunday, by a proprietor of a booth, who looked like Tugboat Annie:"Aye do not drink, par-tae, curse, or have a tattoo and Ahe am a Aussie. Ahe Yam a discredit to mae race."
