Hollywood Babble On & On... #32: Heath Ledger is dead & I don't feel too good myself...

In case you've been living in a cave the actor Heath Ledger of Brokeback Mountain and the upcoming Batman: Dark Knight was found dead at the age of 28.

Unless the coroner discovers a previously undiagnosed heart defect, or some other natural cause, it looks like yet another Hollywood star dead from a drug overdose.

It's both an tragedy and an outrage.

It's a tragedy because Heath Ledger was one of the few actors in 'Young Hollywood' that appeared to be maturing. He even had a young family, which makes the story even more tragic.

And then, on the cusp of his biggest most anticipated premiere as The Joker, he's found dead next to what reports describe as a 'bottle of pills.'

If it is a drug overdose, and not a spontaneous stroke, or aneurysm then I have to ask this question:

What the hell is wrong with people in Hollywood?

Why does Young Hollywood feel the uncontrollable desire to deep fry their nervous system with harsh and usually highly toxic chemicals?

Isn't wealth, fame, and success enough, why do they feel the need to be accepted by predatory paparazzi, brain-dead club-kids, and drug dealers?

It's all such a waste.
