  I also think that it's a disgrace to his memory that the first time his family even knew he was dead was when they turned on the tv to watch the news.

I agree. When I think of what a shock I got when I heard the news on the radio news wednesday morning, I can't imagine what that must have been like for his family. And now, being caught up in such a media circus.
It's heartbreaking.  :(

I think all of us are grieving and we all process it in our own way. Understanding and compassion on everybody's part seems to be what is needed now.

Thanks.

*sigh*

People grieve in different ways. Some by getting angry, apparently, some by rationalizing aspects leading to their grief, and then others in every nuance of grief expression inbetween.

Everyone here is grieving. Otherwise we wouldn't be here.

Please don't let's fight over the proper way to grieve. There isn't one.

Sure enough. As Elle posted somewhere (maybe on this thread, for all I know), even Mary-Kate Olsen's tabloid-reported night of partying might have been her way of dealing with grief. It's not for us to judge.

To each her/his own.

I for one I become obsessed with news articles and videos on sites I would never go too. I'm ashamed I look at them but I just can't help myself - I also joke when I'm nervous or adgitated.

That's precisely what the masseuse and Mary Kate Olsen were trying to avoid. I agree that she should've called 911 right away but we don't know the constraints the masseuse was in when she found Heath passed out, so lets cut her some slack. I think it was a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. Granted she might have saved Heath life but also would've risked losing her job.

Maybe the wrong time...but this hogwash turns me from sad to mad. "risking her job" takes priority over a man's life? The idea that one could even think such garbage makes me sick. If the masseuse did delay in calling for help knowing help was needed, it could be a homicide. Screw her job.

I had a look at the Dark Knight's homepage. This is the only thing there at present:
