Heath Ledger, 1979-2008

Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams

NEW YORK — Actor Heath Ledger was found dead Tuesday of a possible drug overdose in a Lower Manhattan apartment, the New York Police Department said.


Possible drug overdose, possible suicide! Oh dear . . . another blow to the theory that being rich and/or famous is the ticket to happiness.

I think most famous actors — not all, obviously — are convinced that they can do things that nobody else can do, that they’re not cardboard people who are adored for no reason.

Tom Cruise, for example, I don’t think will ever commit suicide.

Oh well . . .

    Hey, me thinks you should start weighing in on politicians. Surely you have some thoughts on these folks?

    My buddy Toby who writes a highly regarded media oriented blog wrote about your hometown paper yesterday. Interesting: http://blogs.jobdig.com/diggings/2008/01/22/orange-county-register-eliminates-its-business-section/

    I completely missed the news about the Register business section and I have to hear about it from Minnesota!

    I get an RSS feed from the Register and just pick out the interesting headlines to read, so to me it doesn’t matter where in the print edition the stories are located … but I do know a lot of people who read the business section regularly, often for real estate news. It may be that since all the real estate news in Orange County now is bad, people just started skipping it and going straight to the comics.

    I don’t follow politics as closely as I used to but maybe I’ll get back into it…
