Julie Deardorf, “Did insomnia kill Heath Ledger?” Chicago Tribune, Feb. 6, 2008
Insomnia medications were reportedly part of the prescription drug cocktail that killed Health Ledger, yet for some reason we still don’t take these drugs seriously.
What outcome can we hope for, from his tragic death? Tighter FDA restrictions? More education and caution on the part of people who take sleeping pills? Better kinds of sleeping pills?
Mark Loftin, “Heath Ledger and Personal Responsibility,” American Thinker, Feb. 9, 2008
“The idea that Ledger himself may be culpable for his death eludes the left. It’s easier to blame the US healthcare system….”
“For others who are unwittingly using dangerous combinations of sleeping pills and anti-anxiety drugs that were never intended to be taken together, perhaps Ledger’s death will prompt them to wake up – so to speak.”
