Heath Ledger KOs the Blogosphere
Heath Ledger's death is a news story, I will concede. But am I the only one who finds it weird that Heath Ledger is the number one news story on the internet, the newspapers and television? Sorry, but I'm not any more attracted to celebrity deaths than any other death. If anything, I'm partial to other deaths, the ones that go unnoticed. It's horrendous how much of a toll drugs take on minority communities in the U.S. and, once in a while, those stories make to the back pages, much to the credit of the reporters who write those stories.
