Quote of the Day

I had no idea who Heath Ledger was until today, but it sounds like he was a miserable human being with a horrible drug problem. It's one thing to snort coke and shoot heroin with your friends, for fun, like Keith Richards. That's frivolous and irresponsible and immoral, and I can understand a person who would criticize it. It's another to use drugs alone on the floor of your apartment, because you can't stop. - Steve H.

Whenever the fate of drug addicts arises, think of this difference. The former deserves your contempt. The latter deserves your pity if not your compassion.
