Barbs Kill

APTOPIX_OBIT_CROCODILE_HUNTER.sff_NY109_20060904015947.jpgOne of my favorite conservationists died today. I admired him because he got into his work, and loved animals that most of us would have silently let slip into extinction. He truly believed in his work, and fortunately, or ironically it was not a croc that killed him.

G’Day Mate, and Good Journey.

Stingray Kills Famed ‘Crocodile Hunter’

CAIRNS, Australia (AP) – Steve Irwin, the hugely popular Australian television personality and conservationist known as the “Crocodile Hunter,” was killed Monday by a stingray while filming off the Great Barrier Reef. He was 44.

Irwin was at Batt Reef, off the remote coast of northeastern Queensland state, shooting a segment for a series called “Ocean’s Deadliest” when he swam too close to one of the animals, which have a poisonous barb on their tails, his friend and colleague John Stainton said.

“He came on top of the stingray and the stingray’s barb went up and into his chest and put a hole into his heart,” said Stainton, who was on board Irwin’s boat at the time.

Crickey!

Blowhard Liberals Never Visit Graves

Posted by Mark on September 4, 2006

The next time a moonbat or a loon shouts- “Bush lied, people died”. Do me a favor: bitch-slap them…please. Removing Saddam Hussein is bigger than their egos.

The remains of 80 people, believed to be Kurdish victims of Saddam Hussein’s regime, were unearthed in two mass graves near the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk on Monday, a Kurdish security official said.

Tens of thousands of Kurds were killed in a military campaign in 1998 codenamed Anfal — Spoils of War — for which Saddam, his cousin Ali Hassan al-Majid, known as Chemical Ali, and five other former commanders are now on trial in Baghdad.

The deputy head of intelligence for Kirkuk, Salah Khaled, said the bodies were believed to date from Anfal, when the military razed villages, launched poison gas attacks and rounded up men, women and children before shooting them in mass graves in northern and southern Iraq.

Liberals and the media pound on us each and every day…how wrong this war is. Remind them how many Iraqis are LIVING because Saddam is no longer in power. It’s been over 3 years now….and we are STILL FINDING dead civilians piled in the ground.

Stacked like cordwood.

Internet Explorer 7

IE7 is out in beta. It’s worth a download. The tabs are more functional than FireFox, and it loads much faster. A couple of bugs when printing, but so far, so much better than IE6.
