heath ledger is one of the last actors i would have suspected used drugs to the point of od'ing. if that is what caused his death, it makes you wonder how widespread drug use really is in hollywood...

I feel so sorry for him and his family. It's too bad that people get so mixed up in stupid things.

I hope we find out that it was just a bad mis-use of Ambien and he kept taking one after the other while he was in that state of delirium everyone experiences with Ambien. Maybe he accidentally OD'd that way.

lots of broad specualation here,friends. your header takes on a pretty accusitory stance yet you follow with a little softer, less judgey comment, tonia. interesting stance.

Dear Anonymous. I really don't think anything I said was judgmental or accusative. The fact is, he died because there were too many drugs in his system. He's a grown man so the fact that he had enough of a particular substance to cause death means he behaved irresponsibly.
I have drugs in my purse right now that, if took in large quantity, would kill me. But I don't run into that problem because I'm responsible with them.
Unless the police discover that someone forced him at gun point to OD on drugs, I'll remain firm in my stance that he died, ultimately, from being irresponsible.

I really didn't mean to offend anyone with this post or the comments attached. I'll refrain from making any more assumptions or sharing my opinions.

Please don't refrain from sharing your opinions. After all, that's what blogs are for, right?

It was assumptive in that the autopsy is still inconclusive. Soooo yeah, share your opinions, but for people to take them seriously they should probably be based on fact first.

different anonymous :)
