I am very weirded by the death of Heath Ledger. When I saw the story on Yahoo news, I gasped. I don't know if it's because he's so young, or if I felt a slight connection because I really like one of his movies (10 Things I Hate About You. Yes, I know, so less cultured than Brokeback Mountain. Truth be told, I never saw Brokeback. I just hate to watch movies that I know are going to make me cry, and I knew it would because my sister saw it in the theater three times and she LOVES a good movie cry). Or maybe because he's Australian, and I lived there and feel a connection in that way. Or because I know he has a young daughter. A part of me feels bad because Brad Renfro died recently, and I didn't have the same feelings. Is anyone else feeling this way?
Perhaps we can gain some wisdom from a Bazooka Joe comic:
Fortune: Friends don't let friends buy junk.
Thanks for the help, Joe.
