Heath Ledger's Death

Haven't said anything about this, 'cause my schedule's been quite busy, but it's certainly too bad that a talented guy is dead at 28. I first noticed him as the eldest son in one of my favorite movies, Mel Gibson's The Patriot.

There is still some speculation over whether his use of illegal drugs were involved in his untimely demise.

It would certainly explain Brokeback Mountain, though, wouldn't it?

Seriously, though, there are some radicals who are up in arms over the decision of some over-the-top Christians to protest at Ledger's memorial service. While their premise is sound --- i.e., homosexuality is an abomination --- their tactics, i.e., disrupting funerals and upsetting loved ones of the deceased --- harms the message they are trying to convey.

Fortunately, these objectionable protests are accompanied by slapstick, with people like the author of [P]MSNBC's "The Scoop" calling the protesters "radicals"?


As opposed to whom? Those who are attempting to mainstream perversion?!?!?
