...is Bindi Sue Irwin, 8-year-old daughter of recently deceased and beloved Croc Hunter Steve Irwin-- turning into the next Jon Benet Ramsey?
While I was an employee at Borders one of my responsibilities was restocking the periodicals section. Just shortly after Steve Irwins death pictures of Bindi Irwin begun appearing on every magazine cover geared towards family life, children, and even People Magazine.
I'd shirk a little bit and blame it on America's obsession of keeping the Crocodile Hunter's memory alive with his daughter...
That was until I found out that Ms. Bindi is planning on attending a gala dinner with Russell Crowe and Naomi Watts, Has a planned appearance on the Letterman show and is performing a concert tribute with her "back up band" the Crocmen for her father.
Among these things she is promoting a new video named, "Bindi Kidfitness" and has a television series coming out this year called, "Bindi, the Jungle Girl," on the Discovery channel.
I'm sure there is a lot of pressure from the Irwin's PR group to push Bindi and capitalize on the situation, but what is her mother thinking? Can't they honor the life of Steve Irwin without exploiting his death?
