    Nameless bum dies on the street of drug overduse... "God what a parasitic loser"
    Hollywood actor dies of drug overdose... "O Lord what a tragedy, he was taken before his time, what a genius, its so sad"

    That reminds me, Whitney Houston is almost two years sober now you go girl! What an inspiration.

    Wilde's cynicism to the contrary, art (including artistic performances) is tangible. What legacy will you leave behind?

    One accomplished nothing with his life, the other entertained millions and brought extraordinary talent to his craft. Equating the two is beyond absurd.

    I'm not going to go on some asshat cry-fest about how my life will never be the same now that he's gone in spite of never having even met him, but I will give respect where it's due. Hoffman may have been highly imperfect, but his career accomplishments have earned him more than to be cast aside like so much trash just because people don't approve of the manner in which he died.

    Clearly you didn't have a settled enough life so may you find it now. RIP.
    To an extent I agree, but y'know I think that there's a huge amount of insecurity in the lifestyle. Never knowing from day to day if you have a role tomorrow, if you have a role how will it be received, and the inordinate level of pressure on the actors vs others in the media making realm. If a director or an editor or some other position screws up their aspect of a media presentation, it'll still be the actor usually that takes the blame....

    I do agree that they should have the resource to get and keep their **** together, but to look at it as somehow saying that a posh life (ie materialistically satisfying) is all a person needs to be happy and well adjusted is a bit narrow minded.

    Hopefully you recognize that for some of us, even the homeless guy on the street dying of overdose is not acceptable and that is part of the reason we want the war on drugs halted and for addiction to be considered a medical issue, not a penal issue.

    I understand Hoffmans' drug addiction began with drugs prescribed for pain by a doctor. A lot of people start their drug addiction that way.

    addiction is a life time disease, why the term "recovering addict" is used. You never get well, you just learn to not use 1 day at a time. The "disease" is always latent.

    There was some talk about the bags being laced with fentanyl, which is usually given to cancer patient in the form of a skin patch.
    Doses are in the mcg.s (micrograms) per hour. A microgram is 1 1/000 of a milligram.

    If he mainlined that he would die like he did with the needle still in his arm. He was very talented, as the saying goes "no hope in dope"

    every time I read about a story like this the whole thing about legalizing drug use seems to be even more asinine.
    Not to derail the thread but why?

    Legalization is the only thing that makes sense when you read this
