Ferris Bueller You're My Hero
Why is Mathew Broderick alive, and Heath Ledger dead?
I got a call from someone that said CityBeat had a column that was stolen from one of my blogs. I went and checked it out, and I don't think that's what happened.
I had done a blog about some religious nuts that think Heath Ledger died because of his part in Brokeback Mountain. Their columnist covered that same topic, but it was different than my blog, other than the idea.
Sure, I've seen CityBeat put artists on the cover of their paper after I had talked about them at parties or in other stories, but what can I do?
I doubt the columnist that wrote this piece on Ledger, did that. He has way too many good ideas, and often times, people come up with similar things to write about. It happens with stand-up comedians all the time.
One thing he brought up in his column, that I brought up in my piece on Ledger, is why other Hollywood actors that have played gay people, didn't suffer the wrath of God.
He talks at great length about Mathew Broderick, for his appearance in Torch Song Trilogy. A very good point.
I would've added, the countless movies in which Broderick condones pre-marital sex, which I believe the religious folks consider a sin. There have also been movies in which he sleeps with a prostitute (Cable Guy), and with his neighbors wife (Election). I think that last one even condones rigging elections if it's for a greater good. With super Tuesday just passing, a perfect time to bring that up.
But more important, Broderick actually killed someone.
And not in the movies! He was driving, I believe in Ireland, and on the wrong side of the road. He hit someone that died.
And, like singer Brandy, he didn't serve time in jail.
So, tack on vehicular manslaughter, as yet another reason for God to strike him down. And, proof that shows, that's why people are silly if they think that's how God operates.
