A drug raddled grim reaper is on the loose in celebrityland.
Aussie film star Heath Ledger has now died from a suspected drugs overdose.
And he's only 28.
Drugs is also behind the destruction of Britney Spears, as well as some slapper called Amy Winehouse, who seems very big in Britain, though I can't recall any of her songs.
Now, I know this blog attracts those of a liberal bent, who do not see drugs as destructive.
But these cases, involving young people who have achieved much fame and fortune, and have just about everything, a bar a successful song or movie for the past year, just highlight the evilness of drugs.
I must confess to having a few puffs of the evil weed and I once had half an ecstasy tablet about 4-5 years ago.
The weed just sent me to sleep and the ecstasy tablet did too, though I had some interesting dreams from that, I can tell you- one with white rabbits and candles, the other had characters from Coronation Street.
Anyway, drugs are for losers and they wreck your lives.
These celebrities and their deaths and destruction just highlight this.
I know of people whose lives have also been damaged by drugs too.
I know it's a cliche but just say no!
