oh man, what sad news…
i got home last night just in time to sit down and watch the “I Am Heath Ledger” that i was looking forward to seeing… really good by the way, and kinda left me both amazed at just how much he accomplished, and even more sad at his passing — learned quite a bit about the guy that i didn’t know as well.
then i turn around and hear about this on the radio while driving over to Wawa for my morning coffee fix (i’m hopelessly addicted)… and was like “oh shit man, really?!”… they guys on the radio said something about it being a possible suicide?
