Sorry to see sour grapes from Ms. Saunders.
I think old Steve was a bit barmy, but he was a thoroughly likable person and full of enthusiasm.
None of us are perfect. Steve Irwin was no exception. But he gave the world a lot more than he got - and that's saying a great deal in a world chock-a-block with celebrities who spend most of their time spewing crud about their politics and their movies.
The world's gonna miss this bloke. He was a good troop.
I agree with your post about Mr Irwin. He was a good mate.
