But enough ...pulleeze.
Personally, I don't really care that he's dead. I didn't know him. I will not be forced to be sad for someone just because their career was in acting. That was his job. That's what he did to pay the bills.
I don't know the other 150,000 people who died that day.
Why do I not mourn for them?
What... is it because this Heath guy was young... or his death was tragic?
Why do I not mourn for the 28 year old who lost his battle with Leukemia, leaving behind his wife and children after they spent all their savings on his health care.
Why is he not on the news? Why are we not interviewing his family?
Remember, 150,000 people die every day - bet you could find several tragic deaths in that number.
Like... say... starvation - is that more tragic than popping some pills and guzzling some booze**? What about death from an elephant stampede? Or how about missing your partners hands on the trapeze? There is tragedy. There is drama.
People... let's put things into perspective -- please.
**This is not intended to be accurate. I don't know how the fellow died. Frankly, I am not really interested in the details.
