This is really newsworthy…Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, died from a freak stingray attack. From a medical perspective, even though the barb of a stingray can inflict serious damage, the likelyhood of getting ‘tagged’ in the perfect spot to cause death so quickly is extremely unlikely as well. Most deliberate victims and gunshot and knife wounds do much better than death en-route to the hospital.

Steve Irwin was the reason I made the adventurous trip to New York City…I searched through some archives to find it, but it’s not in the april-august 2004 archives. I’ll let you know when I find it.
…update…wierd, I looked at my referring URLS, and about 5 of the last 10 are from Steve Irwin searches, pointing to that post I was trying to find! It’s November of 2003 by the way, just click on the archive at right, it’s a story in 2 parts, titled 42nd street.
