Heath. He left a beautiful little girl behind, and he had a lot of movies to make. He was such a free spirit, I am sure he would've entertained us on screen and in real life for many years.
He was an accomplished photographer and I read that he could sing. After he died I read about him. It really was a huge loss. Can I also say how much the Heath Ledger troll disgusts me?

I'd love to see Jesus critique all the Tea Partiers who go around insulting people in his name, or the woman who had to "pray for hours" to decide it wasn't nice to attack the President's daughters. Personally, I think he would die of apoplexy about five minutes after hearing all the crap Republicans say he was for, but still...
It would be fun to see Republicans discover that camo-wearing, AK-47 carrying Jesus was actually a dirty Commie hippie with sandals and long hair that told rich people to pay their taxes and give all their money away to the poor. You would have to wear a coverall to protect yourself from all the heads exploding.

Sorry to be a killjoy, but some of these men and woman lived full lives. Ben Franklin, Eileen Stritch, Liz Taylor, others. Part of the fun of living is knowing that there are no return engagements. You've got one shot. I can see the fun of thinking about Jon Eric Hexum, an empty-headed blond, but what a man! He died too young, and it would be fun to have seen him turn into decrepitude. But, as much as I loved Henny Youngman, and think his comedy deserves to be required viewing for the youth of America, the man was so far past his freshness date he was lucky he wasn't buried prematurely. Some people earned their eternal rest!
