Heath Ledger

Preserve me from the meeja. It’s being reported, with varying degrees of “shock, horror”, that Heath Ledger had 8 prescription drugs in his possession – the thinly-veiled implication being that he was an addict. Complete bollocks, of course, at this stage of the investigation.

When I die, they’ll find 18 prescription drugs in my flat – so what? I can see the report in the local paper, though – loner found dead in flat full of drugs!

It’s bullshit, and so is any speculation about Ledger.
