Should Steve Irwin get a State Funeral?

Here’s an interesting question: should Steve Irwin get a State Funeral. Despite some of his more annoying characteristics, there’s little doubt that as a man Irwin did far, far more than many others in the past in promoting Australia abroad, and after all, we’ve given them to people far less worthy than of one than Steve Irwin. Personally I’d reckon yes.


Update: Steve Irwins family was offered a state funeral, looks like they might turn it down according to this story at
