It's been nearly a month since Steve Irwin, Croc Hunter died tragically. I had intended to post some cautionary comments about how there are only so many times you can go nose to nose with crocodiles and venomous snakes before your luck runs out. I've said variations of this several times before and I'll probably say it again: whenever you dabble in wild animal environments and eco-systems, you relinquish almost all control. Irwin was a likeable man with his heart in the right place, and he didn't deserve his tragic end.

I'm glad I didn't comment at the time, because Mark Steyn has just published the finest and most comprehensive post mortem of Irwin I've seen yet.
