I don't know that they're assuming anything; perhaps they're just thinking that, given the news reports, the subject would be on people's minds.

I agree with you, Katherine.

No offense, Scott, but I think if the White House had done what they decided not to do, it would have looked like they were pointing fingers at Heath.

On the contrary, I'm surprised by what I see as some actual sensitivity from that Administration.

CBS in New York reports drug packets found in Ledger's apartment with a rolled $20 bill, sent for testing.

I know! I hesitate to disagree with any Brokie about anything, today.

Thanks. I'm glad. And your point that we don't yet know the cause of death is well taken and, of course, correct.

From WCBSTV.com
"On the doorstep of his building, candles, flowers and notes from fans were strewn about. One fan wrote, "How could anyone hate 10 things about you," a reference to one of his early teen movies..."

I wish I lived in NYC and could drop something off by his apartment building. I guess it's a circus there right now. I hope the Ledger family makes note of a charity they'd want friends and fans to donate to.

And I agree with Jeff, I think it was very tactful that the White House back off from launching another "just so no" to prescription drugs on such a terrible day.

All the insinuation...  I don't know about drug packets, but don't a lot of bills in circulation have cocaine traces?

I don't know about the number in circulation, but isn't it "customary" to inhale cocaine throuigh a rolled twenty?

Shit.  >:(
