The BBC (and CNN and most of the papers) are reporting that Heath Ledger has been found dead at his apartment in New York. He was 28. Words fail me.

Thanks.
The papers and the news are full of stories about him, stories from people who knew him or had met him or worked with him. It's quite extraordinary; someone at work watched the report on Sky News last night and he said it was obvious the newsreader had never heard of Heath Ledger.
I don't want to seem curmudgeonly, but there was nothing like this when Suzanne Pleshette died last week and I found that news rather upsetting as well.

Yes, this has been in the papers rather a lot over here in the past few days, as you might expect. It's heartbreaking.

I heard about this earlier today. Louis Theroux did a documentary about the Westboro maniacs last year, picketing soldiers' funerals, which, no matter what you think about the rights and wrongs of the war, is utterly despicable. All you can do is shake your head and wonder why we're not all still wearing animal skins and hitting each other with rocks.
