Looking on the Bright Side...

The Australian stock market has surged following the announcement of the death of Heath Ledger.

(Well, I don't know how the financial markets work. It could be true).

Incidentally, isn't it odd how there are some celebrity demises you can see coming - even if it hasn't happened yet - then there are ones like these, that just seem to come out of the blue.

Actually, maybe not. One of those ubitiquous "close friends" who always pop up in these situations reckons they saw it coming. Meanwhile, it's nice to know that cable TV is always prepared (I'm just suprised that came from MSNBC and not FoxNews).

Posterity is assured now, in any case.

In the states, Heath's death has taken precedence over our missing habeas corpus or the impending thought crimes legislation.

That big over there too?

My friends and I have a running joke right now...

"Listen, I don't know if you've heard - it's been kept fairly quiet, but Heath Ledger has died..."
