"Access Hollywood" showed a tape of Heath's friends jumping in the ocean tonight.  They also had a picture of Michelle that they said was taken in the last day or so showing that she is back in New York.

Must be hard for her to be back and away from Heath's family...  :'(

I posted a picture of her and a news article from People over on the "Remember Michelle's pain" thread. It said she is back in NY and back to work, filming scenes from Mammoth in SoHo, just blocks away from Heath's apartment.

I was just surfing some news websites and came across this (irritating) little article posted on msnbc.

A company offering tours of Heath,s apartment??? FFS. >:( >:(
The depths to which some people are prepared to sink too staggers me. That is showing a total lack of respect, not only for Heath,s memory, but his family and friends. Jesus Christ the poor guy has only been gone 3 weeks, and the vultures are out already. That,s just sick. Doesn,t anyone have any respect any more?  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

At first I thought they were actually showing the inside of the apartment, but all they do is drive by the building:

“I suppose some people would say that (it’s in poor taste), but I hear what the public wants to know about,” said Dykes, who noted the stop was added at the request of customers.  It (where Ledger lived) is in the media, and of course people want to know about it. We point out the building and talk about the neighborhood, the rent he paid, his toxicology report. We mention everything that’s in the news.”

When you think about it, they're not doing anything that we haven't been doing here, except it's part of a tour that people pay for.  Like it or not, that building and Heath's passing have become part of the story of New York City.  Although it seems too soon, it's understandable to me.  :-\

And it may be a practical way for Heath Ledger fans -- I'm thinking visitors to NYC here -- who are hesitant to venture out to SoHo on their own to have an opportunity to say their "goodbye".

As for the "jokes" about Heath's death that are already making the rounds, I will always find them in poor taste.  :(

Yeah, I feel lucky I haven't heard any.    :-\

The only jokes I can possibly see someone doing would relate to (what some see as) the bungling that day.

As in, "Gotta tellya, I had some bad chest pain the other day.  Mary-Kate's phone was busy so I had to go to the ER."
