I received a message from L at Road Schola , who happens to be living right near where Steve Irwin's boat is docked. She reports:
"Don't know how big the news is over there, but here they compared it
to the deaths of JFK and Princess Diana.
These were taken down at Marina Mirage in Port Douglas. The second
photo shows a few flowers left by the palm tree."
I messaged her back. Steve Irwin is the one bloke who I would have loved to share a pint with at the local pub, and I would have told all my friends about it ad nauseum.
The cartoon appeared in the New York Post.
