Actor Heath Ledger, 28, Is Found Dead
The actor Heath Ledger was found dead this afternoon in a
building at 421 Broome Street in SoHo, according to the New
York City police. Mr. Ledger was 28 years old.

why does this get to me? It's not like I was a fan or anything. I think the only movie he was in that I saw was Brokeback Mountain. Is it the fact that now the celebrities who are dying aren't just names from an old era to me anymore, but people who are actually around my very own age? strange times indeed...

I hope they'll dedicate The Dark Knight to him. That would be a decent thing to do I think...
