R.I.P. Mr. Ledger.

All the rest of you, please go read the always-wonderful Dana Stevens' "10 Things I Loved About Heath Ledger: What Made Him Irreplaceable.

EDIT: An even more fitting tribute: this anecdote of Chelsea's. [Though I've read her blog before because of Twenty Something Bloggers (and yes, "Twenty Something" really needs a hyphen), this post was brought to my attention by Pajiba.]

I'm really saddened by his death. Its not like I knew him or anything so I'm not sure why... but? It just makes me sad you know?

Hey, I just came across this post and I wanted to say thank you so much for the link.

I hope that I could bring some light about such an amazing person during such a tragedy, especially since the media has dealt with it so carelessly.

Ashlie, I know what you mean. Usually, deaths of high-profile individuals don't hit me that hard. It's not that I'm callous or unfeeling--far from it!--but that there's so much distance as a buffer. I don't know them. But every once and a while, one hits closer to home. For whatever reason--maybe it was Ledger's age or the fact that he seemed so...normal--this was one of them for me.

Chelsea, no problem. Thank you so much for sharing.
