R.I.P.: Heath Ledger (1979-2008)

I’ve shied away from posting anything about this tragedy until now because, frankly, I’ve been appalled by some of the stuff that already has appeared on other blogs. (And, no, I don't see any reason to link to any of it.) A lot of folks – including, more often than I’d like to admit, yours truly -- are quick to make unfounded assumptions and offer snap judgments. In this particular situation, though…

All I want to do at this point in time is offer my condolences to the survivors, and express my regret that another promising talent is, in the words of the Neil Diamond song, done too soon.
