    I was just saying that to the guys in the office here... Colin Thiele, who wrote the novel Storm Boy, among others, also died Monday.

    Week's not out yet, either, which is scary.

    Man, you don't have to tell me...I studied in Melbourne and I really loved my time there...and although Steve Irwin had his share of critics, I'm kind of gutted by his death. I really enjoyed watching his shows as they were quite informative and entertaining.
