The Ledger on Heath

I must be culturally illiterate. Nancy Grace on Headline News calls this guy not just a star, but a superstar -- Me? I never heard of him until he died. Oh, I heard of his movie, Brokebutt Mountain, but I had never heard his name before. Now every news program can speak of nothing else. I guess the election coverage is postponed and nothing else happened in the world in the last 24 hours.

Heath Ledgers early career was a joke. He was a teen movie superstar. But in the past few years he had really grown as an actor and was starting to produce very compelling performances. While i agree with the fact that a celebrity's death is not necessarily a world changing news headline, I still feel loss as i would for anyone and their families. Even Anna Nicole Smith.

(and yes broke-ass mountain was over-rated and an over applauded piece of crap)
